ABSTRACT

Maritime Security Report [November 2000]   [open pdf - 4MB]

Port and cargo security programs being implemented in Colombia's port facilities, maritime jurisdictions, and the marine inter-modal shipping cycle are producing successful results against commercial maritime drug smuggling. Sustaining those improvements may contribute to an effective, long-term attack on commercial maritime drug smuggling via the seaports of Colombia and the Hemisphere. Implementation of successful port security programs on a national scale in Colombia may be replicated by the countries with which it shares a border-Panama, Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, and Ecuador-generating regional international results. The continued initiative and leadership of the Narcotics Affairs Section, U.S. Embassy Bogot, could facilitate the formulation, documentation, and implementation of relevant activities in Colombia over the near term.
