President Tsai vows to strengthen Taiwan’s transnational drug-fighting efforts at international forum

 

On 4 September, President Tsai stressed the government’s commitment to strengthening transnational drug-fighting efforts at the 2019 International Forum on Police Cooperation: Combating Transnational Drug Crimes. In her opening remarks, the president said the government will continue signing agreements in key areas such as mutual judicial assistance and police cooperation so as to bolster the efficiency of the international security net. President Tsai also pointed out that Taiwan can achieve significant advances in law enforcement by sharing its related practices and procedures via police liaison officers stationed abroad. According to President Tsai, tackling drug crime is a top policy priority for her administration, citing the recent launch of the Drug Prevention Fund (DPF) to subsidise programmes spanning addiction treatment, rehabilitation and youth drug awareness.

 

Organised by the National Police Agency under the Ministry of the Interior in conjunction with MOFA, the Mainland Affairs Council and other government agencies, the two-day event featured 350-plus experts and law enforcement officials from more than 30 countries and territories.
