The public security force has also made important contributions to ensuring territorial sovereignty, creating a favourable environment for economic development and strengthening external relations, along with helping to realise the country's socio-economic development goals, he said.
Trong emphasised that the force's operations should focus on its core tasks of protecting national security and social order and safety, in all circumstances.

He also urged the force to remain active in updating, analysing and foreseeing all situations, and provide useful advice to the Party and State.
The force should also work with the government at all levels in bettering the political, cultural, ideological, economic and financial security, along with ensuring that the execution of the newly amended Constitution is carried out smoothly, he said.
He also asked the force to exert more efforts in controlling and reducing crime, and avoiding sudden developments in social security and safety.
