Lang Son provincial border guards have proactively responded to the call of the Border Guard High Command of Vietnam on prevention and fighting against Vietnamese people’s illegal migration and working overseas, violating the laws of foreign countries.

The provincial border guard command has signed agreements on labour cooperation with neighboring country to better control illegal overseas workers.

Due to China’s policy in economic development in border localities, the country has high demand for manual workers. As a result, many Vietnamese people have attempted to cross the border for job seeking.

According to statistics from the provincial Border Guard Command, in the first half of 2019, there were over 1,760 cases of illegal border crossing. More than 1,900 attempts of illegal crossing border have been halted./.
