The ISWG was established to lead and support coordination of PIDCs’ information sharing work programme. The third meeting sought to advance proposed activities and timelines to developing a regional PIDC MoU for information sharing, discuss the establishment of a regional network of accredited contact points, options of hosting a regional workshop to enhance PIDC Members’ capacity to use readily available platforms to collect, store and analyse information sharing, and develop standardised regional Immigration data types that would facilitate seamless information sharing between agencies.
