Areas where prostitution had intensified over the past several years included Betong, Sugai Kolok, Sadao and Hat Yai in Thailand as well as seven states inside Malaysia.
Police questioning of traf....ing suspects as well as victims and witnesses will be jointly conducted by Thai and Malaysian police.
Information pertaining to the traf....ing underworld will be exchanged by the two sides, and witness protection programmes will be provided.
Some 532 officially documented children and women were reported to have been lured or forced into prostitution by both male and female procurers during the past several years, including 489 Thai nationals, with the remainder being nationals of Cambodia.

Australian court upholds 5ex slavery convictions
A brothel owner who smuggled five Thai women into Australia to be prostitutes had her conviction and 10-year sentence for 5ex slavery upheld by the High Court on Thursday in the first case of its kind in the country.
Wei Tang, 44, was convicted by a jury in 2006 of five counts of possessing a slave and five counts of exercising power of ownership over a slave between August 2002 and May 2003.
The Australian was the first to be convicted under anti-slavery laws passed by federal parliament in 1999.
Tang was sentenced to 10 years' imprisonment for enslaving five Thai women whom she smuggled into the southern city of Melbourne with the promise that they would be able to work legally in the 5ex trade and send money home to their families.
Tang used falsified visas to bring the women to her legal brothel, then forced each one to work off a debt of 45,000 Australian dollars (US$34,440) by performing 5ex acts for no pay six days a week.
The Victoria state Court of Appeal overturned the convictions after ruling the trial judge had not correctly directed the jury on how to reach their verdicts.
But six of the seven judges on the High Court reinstated the convictions and the 10-year sentence Thursday.
Kathleen Maltzahn, a founding director of the anti-human traf....ing group Project Respect, said the court decision would lead to more successful prosecutions.
"There's a very clear definition now of slavery which police can rely on so they can absolutely step up prosecutions," Maltzahn said.
