Border gates in Lang Son opened on Tuesday, the 3rd day of the Lunar New Year. By Thursday, more than 450 vehicles transporting goods including agricultural products crossed Lang Son's border gates into China. Exported farm produce included fresh dragon fruit, mango, jackfruit, and watermelon.
Tran Van Nghia, Deputy Director of Huu Nghi Border Gate Customs Office, Lang Son province, said: "We have arranged enough personnel to ensure that goods are exported and imported smoothly and quickly."
The Lang Son Customs Department has encouraged businesses to send in electronic documents and receive the results at the border gate.
Hoang Thi Le, a business owner in Lang Son, says import and export activities at the border gate of the province have been smooth in the past few days. She said: "I hope that this year will be a prosperous year now that China has relaxed its COVID-19 restrictions."
The volume of goods exported to China via the Lang Son border gates during the first days of the New Year shows China’s increasing demand for agricultural products post-pandemic and is a sign that exports will grow this year.
