Competent authorities should work to renew and enhance training and rehearsal quality with a view to improving combat capacity and readiness, he said, adding more efforts should be put in place to effectively manage the border, respond to non-traditional security challenges, and well perform the tasks of civil defense, emergency response, disaster relief and search and rescue work.

He went on to say that the province needs to pay due regard to developing the militia and self-defense forces in key areas and border areas, organizing regular border patrols, and ensuring social order at border gates.

Touching on the foreign affairs work, President Thuong asked the province to strengthen the sound traditional relations between Vietnam and Cambodia, and join hands with the Cambodian side to protect the borderline and border markers and prevent crimes. 

Additionally, he stated that Binh Phuoc should carry out Resolution No.27 on building and perfecting the rule-of-law socialist state in line with the current situation of the province. It should also focus on improving the operation quality of the court system, the leadership and combat capacity of Party organizations, and build strong armed forces.

Binh Phuoc province has a strategic position as it is a gateway for economic, cultural and social exchanges between the Southeastern region, Mekong Delta and the Central Highlands of Vietnam and Cambodia.

In the first nine months of this year, local security and social order have been stable, with local armed forces carrying out various campaigns to suppress crimes and social misconducts.
