Upon the invitation of China’s Minister for Public Security, Mr Zhao Kezhi, a delegation led by U Thein Swe, the Union Minister for Labour, Immigration and Population, travelled to China from 23 to 27 July.
The Union Minister first met with Deputy Minister Mr Xu Gan Lu of the Ministry of Public Security at the ministry’s meeting room in Beijing on 24 July.
During the meeting, they discussed the agreements between the two nations to provide annual trainings to staff members, controlling illegal immigration at the border, reviewing and deporting each other’s citizens if they have immigrated illegally, exchanging information on transnational criminals and cooperating on exposing them, and collaborating on immigration tasks in dealing with trafficking in persons, illegal drugs and arms.
U Thein Swe then met with Mr Zhao Kezhi later in the evening, where they discussed similar causes for cooperation to combat illegal immigration and transnational crime.
On 25 July, the Union Minister met with Mr Zhao Haishan, departmental head for public security, in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, where they discussed matters on immigration.
On 26 July, the Union Minister visited the command center of the public security department. Mr Zhao Haishan and officials demonstrated the artificial intelligence used in their immigration control system, the system to monitor offenders, established networks, and a system to exchange news received on the ground in real time.
Afterwards, the Union Minister met with Mr Li Chunsheng, the Vice-Governor of Guangdong province and its director of public security, where they discussed possible cooperation with Myanmar on the rule of law and apprehending foreign crime suspects.
The Vice-Governor also said he will follow the agreement made by the both countries’ leaders to collaborate with relevant ministries of Myanmar and will organize training courses for this purpose.
