Leaders of the two agencies sign a memorandum of understanding at the conference.

At the conference, the two sides reviewed the results of cooperation in 2018 and discussed orientations in 2019.

They reached the consensus that the two sides well-exchanged information on illegal immigration, smuggling and activities of transnational criminals, among others, thus contributing to security-order maintenance in border and border gate areas.

In 2019, the two sides agreed to continue the implementation of signed agreements and create favourable conditions for trade activities through border gates, contributing to the socio-economic development, as well as solidarity, friendship and mutual understanding between Vietnam’s Border Guard High Command and Cambodia’s General Immigration Department and the two countries’ people in general.

They also consented to bolster information exchange on national security, social order and safety, immigration, activities of criminals in border areas, border gates and related issues for prompt cooperation.

The two sides will collaborate in border gate management, immigration surveillance, and streamlining of administrative procedures, along with prevention of transnational criminals and dissemination of signed treaties and agreements between Vietnam and Cambodia.

At the end of the conference, a memorandum of understanding was inked by the two agencies.
