In his address, he said that the meeting was held in order to seek better ways and means for cooperation after understanding each other's situation and problems and it could be attributed to strengthening and enhancing the common base of cooperation among law enforcement officers who are working towards a common goal.

The distinguished delegates who were attending the meeting put forward their excellent and very informative presentations which include the four working group topics namely illicit trafficking of heroin and abuse, electronic crimes or cyber crimes, ATS control and illicit trafficking by sea, and these presentations led to very open and frank discussions from the floor, and making the meeting a success.

Trust and confidence could be built among law enforcement officers and law enforcement agencies through sharing experiences and giving thoughtful insights and inputs.

He said he would like to thank Ms Joanne Grieg and Mr. Ian Munroe of UNDCP for their kind assistance and advice to make the meeting running smoothly and successfully from beginning to the end.
