Police Brigadier General Win Naing Tun (Head of Myanmar Law Enforcement Organization) said that this is a big problem and every party needs to seriously cooperate together to combat anti-human trafficking in the fishing industry. Previously, Myanmar has cooperated with Thailand and had signed a MOU agreement in 2009. They meet every 4 months to discuss issues. However the main problems are detection, investigation and law enforcement which are different in each country. Therefore, this is a good opportunity that Myanmar, Thailand and Indonesia can discuss how they can overcome these problems.

 

Miss Suwana Suwanjutha [Director-General of DSI (Department of Special Investigation, Thailand)] said that he would like to thank AAPTIP for arranging this beneficial project which will help solve the human trafficking problem. For the law enforcement matter this is more complex and will take time and this meeting was a good opportunity for information and opinions to be exchanged amongst the 3 countries which will benefit them in the future.
