China and Vietnam have taken a big step toward stopping “cross-border gambling” by signing a memorandum of understanding (MoU) at a high-level meeting on crime prevention. Wang Xiaohong, who is China’s Minister of Public Security, and General To Lam, who is from Vietnam, were both in charge of the meeting in Beijing.
Even though China’s state-run Xinhua news agency didn’t talk about the terms of the MoU, it shows that both countries are willing to work together to solve the problem of cross-border gaming. The study didn’t say much about the specific ways that people will work together to solve this situation.
Minister Wang said that President Xi Jinping of China and Nguyen Phu Trong, the General Secretary of Vietnam’s Communist Party, had already set up the framework for “strategic” cooperation between China and Vietnam. This is a reference to a meeting between the two leaders in October of the year before. At that meeting, they decided to work together more in law enforcement, especially to stop “cross-border gambling.”
After the meeting, the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security sent out a news release saying that both countries had agreed to increase border checks and work together to take “effective” action against a wide range of international illegal activities. Some of these things are drug trade, people trafficking, telecoms fraud, and Internet theft.
China and Vietnam have agreed to work together to stop illegal gaming that often crosses national lines. This is shown by the MoU. This attempt to work together is in line with the larger goals of law enforcement to fight international crime and improve regional security.
