The summit provides a forum to discuss measures to combat Transnational Organized Crime and associated problems of porous borders.
Counter-Narcotic operations are a shared security concern across South America as drug trafficking serves as the predominant means by which Transnational Criminal Organizations obtain money and increase power in the region. The subject, as a unifying security concern lends itself to becoming the foundation for wider defense and security cooperation throughout the region.
With senior defence and security leaders meeting with international stakeholders, diplomatic, and law-enforcement personnel the subjects for discussion will include:
*Best practice in regional cooperation and information exchange
*Current capabilities, challenges and asset requirements
*A model for an effective integrated security system
*System integration challenges
*Current and planned initiatives funded by foreign nations and international organisations
*Responding to an adaptive adversary with agility and an integrated approach
*Future developments in intelligence; data fusion and pattern analysis.
