Addressing the session, PM Phuc lauded the two agencies’ implementation of a joint resolution on working coordination, which set out 10 tasks, as well as their well engagement in crime prevention and law enforcement.

PM Phuc recommended the Government Office and the SPP organize annual meetings to improve their cooperation and highlighted the necessity of effective budget estimates for procuracy activities.
