Minister To Lam noted that the two Governments signed an agreement on anti-crime in 2004, laying the foundation for the two ministries to expand their partnership in the field.

Amidst complicated regional and world situations, the two sides should forge stronger affiliation and more effective mutual support, while continuing building and completing the legal framework for their cooperation in crime prevention and fight, said Lam.
