Contemporary border management reflects a complex interplay between a variety of actors in international trade, both across government through its public sector agencies and between government and the private sector. Th e border in many cases is the physical manifestation of the intersection of regulation and commerce. Its proper management is critical to the cost effectiveness of international trade transactions and the smooth flow of legitimate goods and people from both public and private sector perspectives. Any shortcomings in border management tend to highlight weaknesses in a country's regulation of trade and immigration, and their impact is felt in issues such as supply chain security, health, and safety.
