21st Century Border Action Plan

North American Strategy for Competitiveness and Business Council of Canada

A report released by North American Strategy for Competitiveness (NASCO), in partnership with the Business Council of Canada, urges regulators on both sides of the Canada-US border to implement a number of measures to streamline North American supply chains and boost competitiveness.

The 21st century border action plan includes recommendations such as the harmonization of policies to allow access to expedited lanes for low risk traders, using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to quickly move trucks into Canada, and ensuring all lanes at the busiest ports of entry are always staffed. These measures would make a significant difference for cross-border trades and could be implemented immediately.
