The policy follows the Laotian Government permitting the administration of Houaphanh province to temporarily open Ban Dan auxiliary border gate in order to connect with Chieng Khuong border gate in Son La province.

The purpose of opening the additional border gate is to boost imports and exports of agricultural products, while simultaneously strictly following novel coronavirus (COVID-19) prevention and control measures.

This comes after the Laotian Government re-opened some auxiliary border gates with neighbouring countries in an effort to support their enterprises in facilitating trade exchange and import-export activities.
