In his speech, PM Phuc praised the efforts and exceptional achievements obtained by the border guard officers and soldiers in safeguarding the people and the country’s borderline over the past 60 years.

He asked the force to continue implementing the border management and protection tasks in a synchronous, drastic and effective fashion, in addition to accelerating communication to raise public awareness of the safeguarding of national border, finalising mechanisms, policies and the legal system on the national border and the border guard force, improving training quality and researching the application of achievements of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in the management and defence of the national border.

The border guard force was also requested to strengthen international cooperation in the building, management and safeguarding of a borderline of peace, stability, friendship, cooperation, development, civilisation, modernity and solid defence, in addition to implementing defence and border guard diplomacy in a flexible, creative and effective manner in order to build a borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and development with all neighbouring countries.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc speaks at the event.

The Prime Minister emphasised that building, managing and protecting the national border is the responsibility of the entire Party, people, army, sectors, levels, organisations and the whole political system.
