Napolitano to meet with leaders, discuss how to strengthen security of global supply chainAfter an attempted bombing of cargo destined for the U.S. last year, governments around the globe have moved to ensure that cargo is better protected and screened; this week, representatives from the U.S. and Great Britain will meet to discuss how to ensure the global supply chain functions without interruption.

On Friday, the U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, will travel to London to meet with the International Maritime Organization's secretary general, Efthimios Mitropoulos. During their planned talks, the two leaders will discuss how to best increase the cooperative initiatives amongst countries to safeguard the global supply chain.

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Napolitano will continue to work with the World Customs Organization and the International Civil Aviation Organization to produce more stringent cargo screening standards. Moreover, Napolitano will meet bilaterally with the UK Home Secretary Theresa May and Transport Secretary Phillip Hammond to discuss how the two nations can strengthen not only cargo screening, but also cyber and aviation security.

The security of the global supply chain is of utmost importance as even small hiccups can cause major delays in the delivery of goods around the world.
