They were warmly welcomed by the Executive Director (ED) of ASEANAPOL Secretariat, Police Colonel Kenechanh Phommachack, Directors and staffs.

Soon after the ED gave his welcoming remarks, Guoli Jiang expressed that MPS of China regards ASEANAPOL a crucial counterpart in the region to combat transnational crime. He then conveyed his presentation on “Organised Transnational Telecom Fraudulent Crimes” which had clocked 610,000 cases filed in 2016 and incur RMB 17 billion loss in China itself.
