Enhanced coordination and patrol

According to the assessment of Gia Lai - Kon Tum Customs Department, at the borderline with Laos (the Bo Y International Border Gate), smuggling and illegal transportation of goods across the border was more complicated, increasing both in quantity and methods.

Also at the border with Cambodia (the Le ThanhInternational Border Gate),cases of smuggling and illegal transportation of goods across the border were fewand spontaneous,but also more complicated than before. The suspectsoften tookadvantage of rugged mountainous areas between the two border gates with many trails andshortcuts.
