Coast Guard Region 1 builds a comprehensively strong, “exemplary, typical” unit

Coast Guard Region 1, under the Coast Guard Command, is responsible for, along with other forces, controlling and protecting the sovereignty and sovereign right over the waters and islands from the North to the Centre. In the seas and islands under its areas of responsibility, smuggling, trade fraud, and crime happen very complicatedly.

In order to complete its tasks, the Region’s Party Committee and Command have made many guidelines and solutions for leadership and direction, in which, building a comprehensively strong, “exemplary and typical” unit is one of the most important solutions.
