Hanoi (VNA) -  Representatives from the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the Malik research institute in Switzerland met on December 15, focusing on cooperation between the two sides in security management and technology application in fighting security challenges in many fields.

Visiting Vietnamese Deputy Minister of Public Security Nguyen Van Thanh and Professor Fredmund Malik, Head of the Malik research institute  discussed great challenges facing the Vietnamese ministry in the context of international integration.

They discussed non-traditional security challenges like water and energy security, food security, climate change, high-tech crime, and challenges related to the ongoing fourth scientific and technological revolution, which requires the Vietnamese ministry to reform and apply new technologies and smart solutions in management and training, towards meeting requirements to ensure  security and orders.

The two sides also discussed orientations to enhance partnership in applying the “systems-cybernetic” solution in works relating to the fight against crimes, especially high-tech and environmental crimes, transnational crime and new crimes.

As scheduled, the solution will be piloted in the People Police Academy of Vietnam with the aim of improving the training quality.

The application of the solution in strategic forecast and professional research was also debated during the working session.
