VGP – The central province of Nghe An has issued Directive No. 15/CT-UBND-NC aiming to address issues related to drug trafficking on the border areas shared with Lao Xiangkhouang Province.

Nghe An's People’s Committee asked Its Department of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs to cooperate with other relevant agencies to control drug addicts and enhance treatment activities.
