HCM City (VNA) – The People’s Procuracy of Ho Chi Minh City inked a cooperation agreement with the Prosecutors’ Office of the Republic of Korea’s Busan city on September 8.

Accordingly, the two sides will increase the sharing of information and documents within their capacity so as to assist each other to fulfill their respective duties.

They will create the best possible conditions for delegation exchanges in case they need consultation, research or personnel training.

At the signing ceremony in HCM City, Duong Ngoc Hai, head of the municipal People’s Procuracy, said the southern city is an economic, cultural and social hub of Vietnam. Like Busan, it is facing an array of modern social problems such as pollution, social crime, smuggling, tax evasion and hi-tech crime.

Therefore, cooperation and experience sharing in crime prevention is of critical importance to their duty performance, he noted.

Hwang Cheol Kyu, head of the Busan Prosecutors’ Office, said he hopes for closer bilateral cooperation to intensify the two agencies’ professional competence, as well as their countries’ friendship.-VNA
