Under the MoU, the provinces will coordinate in managing and protecting forest resources in areas along their shared boundary in the 2017-2020 period.

The two sides will share information and experience in forest management and work together to deal with violations of regulations on forest management and protection.

They pledged to intensify the monitoring of the trade of forestry products and promote local residents’ engagement in forest protection.
