Laos has upgraded security at key border points
close to Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam.
New equipment and more reliable internet access
have been installed at seven border crossing points, and frontline
immigration officers have
been connected to Interpolís I-24/7 global police network and databases.
The border points are:
Lao-Thai Friendship Bridges 2, 3 and
Luang Prabang Airport (North Laos)
Pakse Airport (South
Interpol staff from Lyon and Singapore visited
Laos to train frontline offices in the northern and
southern regions of the landlocked country to ensure that they know how to

The project forms part of Interpolís Twinning programme
which facilitates the development of collaborative and mutually
beneficial exchanges between two Interpol National Central Bureaus
(NCB) or countries.
Funded by Japanís Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, the project builds on the EU-ASEAN Migration and Border
Management Programme II under which three border points were
connected to the Interpol network as part of capacity building
efforts in ASEAN transit hubs.
