From May 8 to 24, more than 3,600 tons of fresh lychees from the provinces of Hai Duong, Bac Giang and Vinh Phuc were exported to China via Lao Cai province’s Kim Thanh II international border gate. Several measures, including COVID-19 prevention work, have been implemented to ensure quick and safe customs clearance for the goods.
Vi Hai Yen from the Quang Minh import-export company in Lao Cai told en.vietnamplus.vn that complicated COVID-19 developments have caused many difficulties for exports; however, customs units at the border gate have provided the best possible conditions for businesses involved.
The turnover of goods imported and exported via Lao Cai’s border gates exceeded 579 million USD as of May 15. Of the total figure, close to 400 million USD was from the export of products like dragon fruit, mango, jackfruit and watermelon.
