Hangzhou – IOM, the UN Migration Agency, and the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration of China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) is today (8/9) holding a joint training on ‘International Migration Law and International Standards’ for 33 Chinese officials from the MPS and Provincial Security Bureaus.

Organized under the framework of the European Union-funded EU-China Dialogue on Migration and Mobility Support Project, the training in Hangzhou is being conducted by IOM international migration law, identity management and biometrics experts, together with European experts on migration law and China from the University of Cologne and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law.

"China continues to work with IOM and all parties to actively participate in international cooperation in the field of international migration, to better protect the well-being of migrants, to achieve global orderly population mobility, and to contribute in promoting global prosperity and stability," said Deputy Director General of the Bureau of Exit and Entry Administration Liu Liu.  

“This specific training for immigration officials from the Ministry of Public Security at national and provincial levels is important, given the multi-layered migration landscape in China, where authorities interact and share responsibility for complementary areas of migration management,” said IOM China Chief of Mission Pär Liljert.

The training aims to help participants to better understand the changing global frameworks for cooperative migration governance, and to provide an opportunity for them to discuss ways of improving migration management in China.
