After a tour of Customs Headquarters, including a meeting with the management team and a training session, Secretary General Mikuriya took a trip to the King Fahd Causeway connecting Bahrain to the eastern part of Saudi Arabia. He observed Customs operations using dogs and scanners to detect illegal narcotics and undeclared cash on travellers. He also met the Crown Prince of Bahrain and discussed ways to strengthen Coordinated Border Management, supported by the ongoing work on the Single Window led by Customs as well as the harmonization efforts made by juxtaposed Customs offices at the border with Saudi Arabia.
