The UK’s Border Force has donated two portable gas analysers and calibration kits to the Antigua and Barbuda Customs Division valued over EC $4,000.  The donation will support Antigua and Barbuda Customs in their endeavours to combat the smuggling of drugs and other contraband across the Caribbean as well as in their efforts to secure the borders of Antigua and Barbuda.

 

The provision of these gas analysers is particularly important as Customs Officers operate in a variety of environments and require portable technology that can be transported easily.  The gas analysers will also ensure the health and safety of officers.  Additionally, it will contribute to the efficiency of containers passing through the port.  The equipment will minimise the time that containers are held at the port waiting to be ventilated, which will result in the faster and safer clearance of goods.

 

Resident British Commissioner to Antigua and Barbuda, Ms Lindsy Thompson, formally delivered the equipment to the Comptroller of Customs & Excise Division, Mr Raju Boddu, in a ceremony earlier today.  Ms Thompson remarked that “the donation of this equipment by (UK) Border Force to Antigua and Barbuda Customs is a further example of the continued close collaboration and partnership between the governments of the UK and Antigua and Barbuda”.

  1. Take a look at that first picture. Something funny here. Notice how both the Antiguan and the British woman are each lifting one foot??? They doing a dance or something? Maybe it’s a new way or flirting, or a new type of greeting instead of a handshake. Chuptz!!!
