Jakarta — The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) has announced plans to boost cooperation with China’s National Narcotics Control Commission (NNCC) to combat drug trafficking in the region.
BNN head Anang Iskandar said recently that the cooperative efforts would aim to improve the policing of drugs coming out of the world’s major drug producer, China, into Indonesia, which had become a hub for international drug distribution.
“China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and West Africa are all involved in international drug syndicates that the BNN has identified,” he said, as quoted by Antara news agency on Monday.
International drug dealers have targeted Indonesia mainly for the distribution of ecstasy pills and crystal methamphetamine, Anang added.
“One of the biggest producers [of crystal meth] is Guangzhou, China,” Anang said.
The NNCC reported that 13.7 tons of crystal meth had been produced in China in 2014 with 75 percent coming from Guangzhou. Apart from being distributed in China, the drug has also been distributed in other countries, including Indonesia.
