Japan helps Pakistan improve airport security screening with biometrics

 

Earlier this week, the government of Japan agreed to extend a grant worth almost $2 million USD to Pakistan to provide an advanced facial recognition system to the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to improve security screening at airports.

According to a report in Business Recorder, the grant program is designed to support the promotion of economic and social development of developing countries in the field of security improvement and counterterrorism by providing equipment in which Japanese advanced technologies are used.

The Ambassador of Japan to Pakistan, Takashi Kurai commented: “Security enhancement is indispensable for successful socio-economic development in Pakistan. This Japanese advanced system would serve the crime deterrent at the airport and would improve the security of passengers and people working at the airport.”
