CWAG Hosts Bi-National Smuggling Conference

Conference of Western Attorneys General Logo

The Conference of Western Attorneys General, chaired by Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard, is sponsoring a Bi-National Forum Toward A Regional Multi-Disciplinary Approach Addressing Smuggling on March 10-12, at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. All interested U.S. and Mexico State Attorneys General and federal officials are invited to attend. The purpose of the conference is to strengthen relations among members of the United States’ Conference of Western Attorneys General and Mexico’s National Conference of Attorneys General (CNJP). Participants will discuss developing opportunities to work together to reduce smuggling crimes, including human trafficking, drug trafficking, weapons trafficking and other related crimes.

The stakeholders involved in smuggling reduction efforts are faced with a myriad of challenges including an international border, uncoordinated state and federal efforts, limited resources and distinct legal systems. The goal of the conference is to develop concrete strategies to effectively address smuggling in a regional and coordinated manner.
