Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security and the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC) vowed at a conference Monday to boost cooperation in the fight against drug and crime.

Representatives at the conference held discussions to review and assess the implementation of UNODC's national programs in Vietnam in line with the UNODC Medium Term Strategy during 2008- 2011 period, UNODC's Regional Program Framework for East Asia and the Pacific 2009-2012, and the United Nations Action Plan during 2008-2010 period that took place in Vietnam as one of the eight selected countries in the world.

Vietnamese government has gained a variety of important results in the fight against drug and crime such as increasing people's understanding and awareness on drug and crime, establishing and completing the legal system on this field and carrying out various action plans and programs on fighting drug and crime among others.

Vietnam's accomplishments contributed much to the fight against drug and crime in the Asian region and all over the world.

Representatives also discussed to map out future orientations and plans on fighting drug and crime this year and the coming five years.
