  • Finance, supply, install and interface the Border Information System so that all required reporting is readily available to the relevant authorities. We aim to make the border process as seamless as possible.
  • Ensure the full empowerment of the Government officers through an extensive training program to ensure a smooth and efficient adoption of all technologies employed.
