Bilateral coordination remains essential for travel recovery
In this fifth edition of Smart Borders we decided to focus on the most recent border recovery initiatives. We welcome the final report of the Task Force on Public Health and the U.S.-Canada Border published by the Wilson Center’s Canada Institute on October 29, 2021, and in particular the recommendation to reverse the current zero risk paradigm, and transition towards coordinated risk management supported by real-time data sharing, interoperable technological solutions. We are also delighted to present a brief summary of recommendations and proposals put forward by the FBC Task Forces at the FBC/PNWER Future Borders Strategy Workshop that took place in Vancouver, Canada, on November 17, 2021.
