High-ranking Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) officials discussed strategies to apply new technologies to migration control systems at their meeting here Wednesday.

On the second day of their meeting, which runs until Aug. 23 in the Peruvian capital Lima, delegates from the 21 member economies reported the technical advances made in border security control in their countries or regions.

Peruvian General Director of Migration and Naturalization Juan Alvarez said the discussions seek to reinforce security controls and guarantee the validity of visitors' identification documents.

Alvarez said Peru has been working on the implementation of biometric technology in migration control systems, which will guarantee the authenticity of personal identification documents and speed up visitor control.

Equipment with biometric technology capable of reading passports with microchips will be used at the Lima-Callao International Airport during the APEC summit in November.
