Description of Project :
This project aims to strengthen the security measures of Aqaba Customs by improving X-ray inspection systems for large cargo in Aqaba Customs under the executing agency Jordan Customs Department. As a result, the cargo inspection system of Aqaba Customs is strengthened, and it becomes possible to carry out the inspections more quickly and accurately when examining the increasing imported cargo landed at Aqaba Port, thus preventing the inflow of drugs, firearms, explosives and contributing to the maintenance and stabilization of the security of Jordan and its surrounding areas.
