Tan Thanh – Pu Zhai border gate

Another China border crossing reopened for Vietnamese exports

China’s Guangxi authority reopened its Pu Zhai border crossing on January 25, after closure for over a month due to Covid-19 concerns. The Tan Thanh – Pu Zhai border gate acts as a major gateway for imports of fruit and agricultural products from Vietnam to enter China. The two sides agreed to conduct on-the-border deliveries with drivers required to wear masks and personal protective equipment.

The customs clearance resuming at the Pu Zhai checkpoint is seen as a positive and much-needed move by Guangxi ahead the second meeting of the Working Group on Vietnam-China Trade Facilitation and the first meeting of a specialized committee set up to addressing congestion of goods at Vietnam’s northern border gates with China.

Thanks to concerted efforts from both sides, the number of cargo trucks stranded in Lang Son significantly dropped over the last several days. In the early morning of January 24, there had been 355 trucks lining up for clearance at border gates in Lang Son, down nearly 4,000 from a month ago.
