Overview of the conference.

The Korean NPA will continue projects to improve the criminal science capacity (phase 2) and provide equipment and means for the Vietnamese MPS in the coming years. Particularly, the two sides will promote cooperation in personnel training and capacity building of police officers in charge of hi-tech crimes, drug-related crimes, and human trafficking as well as in teaching Vietnamese and Korean languages for police officers of two countries.
