Border Management and Technologies Summit Asia 2021
23-25 February 2021 - Singapore
Since our event in New Delhi in 2018, IBMATA has been working with WTTC and other partners to develop a vision for digital borders and seamless travel to take the hassle out of travelling without compromising security. Following workshops in Istanbul and Ottawa in 2019 – and a discussion panel with Border leaders at the International Summit on Borders in Washington DC in June 2019 – we have produced a White Paper setting out a roadmap for the border of the future which we are sharing with border agencies worldwide.
One of the key features of the paper is digital identities and the ever-increasing use of biometrics in immigration and border control solutions.
Singapore is a unique country that has one of the busiest land borders in the world between Singapore and Malaysia. Changi Airport is one of the most popular stopover airports in South-East Asia and due to Singapore’s geographic location Singapore Straits plays an important role in customs clearance.
The event will be chaired by the IBMATA Chairman, Mr Tony Smith, the former Director-General of UK Border Force.
