The training course focused on the methods of controlling the safety of vessels, port infrastructure, and security of seaport staff, along with technology-based inspection and security awareness among the management responsible for seaports security.

Security awareness of seaports gains significance as smugglers sometimes use seaports to execute their anti-social activities. Some businessmen also evaded the tax by committing fraud with seaport authorities. How to detect and stop this malpractice is discussed from different perspectives.

The training course also covered various other security-related topics. These topics related to the procedure of seaport work and inspection mechanisms, all aimed at enhancing the development and security of seaports.

Topics like assessing seaports’ security risks and threats, identifying weak points, and other mechanisms like providing security services were discussed.

The main issues of bilateral and multilateral relations are deeply discussed. In the lack of multilateral cooperation between the countries, managing the security at the seaport will be impossible.
Issues related to verifying and reporting forged documents  used for tax evasions at seaports were also discussed.
