Cambodia Hosts a Seminar on National Environmental Security-Forestry Crime

Cambodia's Ministry of Environment in collaboration with Interpol has been hosting a Seminar on National Environmental Security-Forestry Crime in Phnom Penh.

Minister of Environment H.E. Say Samal, who presided over the event's opening ceremony on Mar. 27, said this two-day seminar will build relations between the state institutions in preventing cross-border forestry crime and trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.

The ministry, Interpol, and other relevant institutions can exchange information and strengthen the capacity of specialised working groups to combat wildlife and forestry crime, he underlined.

Mr. Kitaek Kang, Director of Interpol in Bangkok, said the participants can share experience, knowledge and skills on law enforcement against any forms of regional environmental crime.
