Beyond the Border Action Plan

The Beyond the Border Action Plan sets out joint priorities for achieving a new long-term security partnership in four key areas, of  addressing threats early; promoting trade facilitation, economic growth, and jobs; strengthening cross-border law enforcement; and protecting shared critical infrastructure, including enhancing continental and global cybersecurity, guided by mutual respect for sovereignty and our separate constitutional and legal frameworks that protect individual privacy.
