Dak Nong (VNA) – The Party committees of the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong and the provincial border guard force have agreed to boost cooperation in dealing with issues along border areas and in socio-economic development in the locality.

At a meeting on October 3 in Dak Nong, representatives from the two agencies signed an agreement on border coordination in 2016-2020.

The two sides will focus on directing the provincial border guard force to manage and safeguard the national border.

They will work to build plans to fight activities violating border sovereignty, and prevent diseases, organise free medical check-ups and medicine provision for local poor households and disabled people.

The border guard force will also be active in the locality’s socio-economic development through helping residents in border areas escape from poverty.

The two sides also agreed to propose the Government to develop the existing Dak Puer border gate in Dak Mil district into an international border gate in the future.

During the last five years, the two organisations saw effective coordination in border work. They devised many solutions to issues arising along the border in line with Party policies.

Under the direction of the two Party organisations, the provincial border guard force performed socio-economic development programmes, including movements of new-style rural area building, and those to support poor locals and students.

On the occasion, representatives from the provincial border guard force’s Party Committee presented 100 breeding cows and 50 scholarships worth 1.8 billion VND to needy households and students in local border areas.-VNA
