Extracts from the press conference by Franco Frattini, on the launch of a border management package
Franco Frattini, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, presented a proposal for a "border management package" aiming at improving external border control standards while strengthening the protection of the victims of the traffic of human beings.
The package foresees a Communication on Entry/exit system which strengthen border control procedures on third-country nationals to help better management of migration flows, preventing illegal immigration, as well as any possible threats to the security.
The proposal includes also a report on the evaluation and future development of Frontex that will be an essential assessment for the feasibility of establishing a European system of border guards. PHOTOSHOTLIST
