Recent trends in counterfeiting of travel documents and how Government is responding

Session Chair

With the ever-increasing sophistication of counterfeiting today, it is necessary for governments to take proactive steps to design secure travel documents that can be readily authenticated by law enforcement, while continuing to support and facilitate travel and border crossing. This session will examine the recent trends in counterfeiting observed by the U.S. Government, and how the Department of State and Government Publishing Office have responded – from design and construction, to production.
