    Good Morning - I am pleased to have this opportunity to be here today and I thank the Association for inviting U.S. Customs and Border Protection to participate and share with you some of what we have been up to post 9/11

    My presentation today:CBPs layered enforcement strategyC-TPATFASTNext steps and future vision

    Happy to answer any questions.

    Before I get into the details of our current initiatives - I want to give you a sketch of where we are as an agency today.Source: CBP Press release, "Border Agency Reports First-Year Successes," January 11, 2005, http://www.customs.gov/xp/cgov/newsroom/press_releases/0012005/01112005.xmlOur greatest challenge has been --- how to increase border security while continuing to facilitate legitimate trade.

    Many felt that taking the necessary steps to secure our borders would only add another barrier to free trade and to the efficient movement of cargo.

    However, many of the current initiatives and programs in CBP demonstrate that increased security can lead to a more efficient and cost effective flow of trade.

    We have integrated our strategic initiatives while continuing to employ a layered enforcement strategy.
