PPA leaders welcomes delegation of Australian federal police
Colonel, Dr. Dang Xuan Khang, Deputy Director of the PPA received and worked with the high-ranking delegation of Australia Federal Police (AFP)

On behalf of the PPA leaders, Colonel Dang Xuan Khang expressed his deep gratitude to AFP in common and the liaison officer of AFP in Ha Noi in particular. Also, he reconfirms that the good relationship between two countries; between AFP office in Ha Noi and the PPA will continue and uphold in the coming time.  What’s more, Mr. Dang Xuan Khang reviewed AFP cooperative activities to PPA such as supporting PPA officers and lecturers to study abroad in Australia, send reporter to talk at the PPA, supporting for organizing workshop and international training as well.

However, Mr. Khang emphasized that to get effective, long-lasting cooperation which is suitable for the change of the current security situation, two sides should research and carry out a more practical project called training centre for high-tech crime prevention at the PPA. This is a big project in PPA’s strategic development; if being implemented, the project will be a significant breakthrough of the PPA in police training for high-tech crime. This project is reviewed carefully by two countries; however, because of some objective reasons, it has not carried out yet. Mr. Dang Xuan Khang gave a proposal to AFP and Mr. Clive Muray for taking interest and support in order to implement soon this project in the future.


On the other hand, Mr. Khang offers AFP to promote its role in strengthening cooperation relationship with Australia police training units so as the PPA officers have opportunity to take part in learning and research program in Australia with different fields including Law, Criminology and transnational organized crime prevention. Specially, AFP officer in Ha Noi should consider to cooperate with the PPA in researching reality and solution for preventing crime which are Vietnamese in Australia and experience lesson for Vietnam.


Speaking at the meeting, Mr. Clive Murray sincerely thanked the PPA authorities and functional units within the academy for warm welcome. The AFP appreciated the efforts of Vietnam police force, especially of the PPA in constructing and improving the efficient cooperation between two sides.  According to Mr. Clive Murray, he will support PPA’s cooperative activities as PPA’s proposal. Nonetheless, due to budget reduction of the Federal Government to AFP, it is necessary for the big international project to review before approving the expense. He also said that after coming back, he would try his best to spur up cooperation in crime prevention between two sides in the future.


At the meeting, Chris McDevitt said that he recognized and appreciated the PPA’s efforts in cooperation with AFP in recent years. In spite of being a new chief communication officer in Vietnam, he received the cooperation and enthusiastic support from the agency within the Ministry of Public Security of Vietnam and especially the PPA.  He expressed that the AFP office will focus on considering researching reality and solution for preventing crime which are Vietnamese in Australia, supporting to build display area about Australia police force at the 12-floor library.


Finally, two sides discussed and agreed many important issues. Under the plan, the AFP delegation will take part in Executive Board meetings of the Vietnam – Australia Joint Transnational Crime Centre (JTCC).
