Specifically, the Chinese side will re-open its border for people, vehicles and goods in the railway border gate on Nanxi River, the road border gate on Red River, Kim Thanh II International Border Gate, and the Lao Cai International Border Gate.

Thuan said that the board has sent a notice to relevant agencies and businesses on the resumption, while preparing necessary conditions to maintain smooth import-export and entry-exit activities in line with regulation.

Over the past two years, China’s restriction measures to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic have seriously affected import-export activities through border gates. The import and export value of goods and services via Lao Cai’s international border gates neared 1.7 billion USD in the first nine months of 2022, down 39.4% year-on-year./. VNA
