US Department of State’s Export Control and Related Border Security Program trained 33 customs officials from Sri Lanka in risk management of cargo.

The session which began on Monday (21) ended today (25), was conducted in Colombo and coordinated by EXBS.

Participants learned how to identify high-risk shipments and improve cargo targeting capabilities through the use of document analysis.

The US embassy in Colombo said, "They can now better screen shipments by identifying those that require a physical inspection".

EXBS aims to prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the transfer of conventional weapons that threaten regional peace and stability.

The EXBS program comprises a wide range of nonproliferation strategic trade control assistance programs, from licensing and legal/regulatory technical assistance, to provision of equipment and training for seaport, border control, and law enforcement officials.
