Acting President Vo Thi Anh Xuan visiting the Border Guard Academy's hall of fame

Speaking at the working session, Vo Thi Anh Xuan hailed the Border Guard Academy for its achievements over the past six decades, especially its important contribution to education-training, national construction and defense, and international missions.

The Border Guard Academy has improved its quality and efficiency of admission, training, sci-tech and international cooperation with Laos, Cambodia and Russia while successfully conducting research on hundreds of valuable theoretical and practical topics, she said.

The leader asked the Border Guard Academy to strengthen itself in terms of politics and ideology, renew teaching and study methods, protect national borders amid the fourth industrial revolution, pay attention to providing training for officers in remote and mountainous areas and children of ethnic minorities in border and island areas, as well as expand international cooperation.

It was also urged to develop a contingent of officers and teachers who could meet all requirements in the new situation.

The Acting President hoped that the Border Guard Academy should be at the forefront of research and forecasting, including scientific research to offer counselling to the Party, State and military on the national protection strategy in the new situation.
