Last week, Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, hosted the 24th International Border Police Conference (IBPC), a bi-annual event that brought together law enforcement executives from nearly 100 countries on five continents, as well as representatives of international organisations, EU institutions and agencies.

Among the many bilateral and multilateral initiatives organised on the margins of the event, Frontex held a bilateral meeting with Moroccan law enforcement representatives, dedicated to explore areas of mutual interest and to discuss possibilities for cooperation, including on risk analysis, technology and innovation as well as coast guard cooperation.

In total, more than 300 participants took part in the conference, which focused on cross-border security through preparedness, prevention and response to global challenges such as terrorism, people smuggling, and document and identity fraud.
