Around 100 participants from 17 Asia-Pacific countries will participate in International Drug Enforcement Conference (IDEC) in Batam Island of Indonesia on Tuesday, Antara news wire reported here Monday.

"The International Drug Enforcement Conference this year will be participated in by around 100 participants from 17 Asia-Pacific countries," Sumirat, a spokesman of the National Narcotics Agency (BNN) said here.

The spokesman said IDEC was a regular conference of law enforcers from various countries to discuss the fight against illicit drugs. Sumirat said Riau Islands Province, especially Batam, was the second entry point of illicit drugs and narcotics in Indonesia.

Meanwhile, the BNN chapter of Riau Islands spokesman, Senior Commissioner Suryawirawan, said that due to its border sharing with several neighboring countries, the province was prone illicit drug smuggle attempts.
