UN Migration Agency, China’s Ministry of Public Security Study Latest Trends in Document Fraud

Capacity Building, Integrated Border Management

Guangzhou – IOM, the UN Migration Agency and the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration of China’s Ministry of Public Security yesterday (21/9) jointly organized a technical training on combating document fraud for 58 Chinese officials in Guangzhou.

Experts from The Netherlands, Norway, Germany and China discussed the latest trends in document fraud with participants, sharing knowledge, best practices and technical skills used to detect document and identity fraud.

“Given the fast pace at which the fraudulent document industry adapts and invents new instruments in this sphere, IOM encourages inter-government collaboration and information sharing as the best way to curb this transnational crime and ultimately facilitate safe, orderly and humane migration,” said IOM China Chief of Mission Pär Liljert.

The training was one of a series of capacity building efforts and exchanges under the framework of EU-China Dialogue on Migration and Mobility Support Project, which is funded by the Partnership Instrument of the European Union.
