A delegation from Thailand’s Office of the Narcotics Control Board (ONCB) on November 14 shared experience in drug prevention and combat with their counterparts in the northern province of Thai Nguyen.

Participants at the working session heard a report on the province’s anti-drug situation over the past five years. Local forces have launched crackdown campaigns on drug crimes and proposed prosecuting 1,801 cases with 1,177 accused.

However, prevention efforts are facing numerous difficulties as the crime shows more complicated developments with more cunning tricks, the report added.

At the working session, the Thai guests spoke highly of Thai Nguyen’s drug prevention results and shared their useful experience and creative ways to deal with this crime.

The two sides also pointed out shortcomings in the work, thus together struggling against the crime in both Thailand and Vietnam in general and Thai Nguyen in particular.-VNA
