NDO - Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh, head of the National Steering Committee Against Smuggling, Trade Fraud and Counterfeit (Steering Committee 389), held a working session with authorities of Quang Tri province on January 20 on the province's socio-economic development and smuggling prevention.

In order to prevent smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods, particularly in the upcoming Lunar New Year, the Deputy PM proposed that Quang Tri strengthen the leadership of Party committees and authorities at all levels over the fight against smuggling, trade fraud and fake goods, while considering it an important and regular task.

He also asked functional forces to closely coordinate with each other and regularly patrol and inspect border gates and trails to promptly prevent, arrest and handle cases of smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods.

Local authorities also advised to strengthen cooperation with the authorities and people of Savannakhet and Saravan provinces of Laos, contributing to maintaining a peaceful and friendly shared-border and stabilising local socio-economic development.

In the morning of the same day, the Deputy PM surveyed the prevention of smuggling, trade fraud and counterfeit goods at the Lao Bao international border gate in Huong Hoa district.

He also visited and presented 150 gifts to needy students and households in the district. He conveyed his best New Year wishes to the local people and authorities.
