Addressing the meeting, Deputy Prime Minister Le Thanh Long tasked ministries, sectors, and localities to push forwards with fighting drug-related crimes, effectively implementing the 2021 Law on Drug Prevention and Control, and promoting anti-drug communications with diversified contents and formats.

Focus should be put on drug hotspots and high-risk groups, especially youths, students, and workers, to enhance the entire society's "immunity" against the scourge of drugs, he said.

The Deputy Prime Minister also requested functional forces to strengthen measures to prevent drug supply sources, crack down on illegal drug use spots, and improve infrastructure and the quality of drug detoxification and post-detoxification management.

In Nghe An, after more than two years of implementing and expanding the model of "drug-free border communes", 227 out of the 460 commune-level localities have been recognized as "drug-free" areas. Five district-level localities have recorded 100 percent of their communes free of drugs.

The event saw the attendance of officials from nine provinces bordering Laos./.
