Police in south China's Guangdong Province have seized over 30 tonnes of narcotics and arrested over 20,000 people with links to over 1,000 drug rings in the first ten months of the year.

Deng Jianwei, head of the Guangdong narcotics department, said on Thursday that the results were achieved thanks to regional cooperation.

Police authorities sent working groups to major drug-production bases in the province, closing 98 drugs production workshops in Lufeng and Huilai this year.

Deng, however, said some gangs had been tipped off and had moved production to other regions.

The province has seen 75,000 people register as new drug users this year, making the total 565,000, one sixth of the country's total drug users, he said.

Deng said that 62,000 drug users were covered by the mandatory drug rehabilitation program in Guangdong this year.
