In Lang Son province, customs clearance is carried out at four border gates: Huu Nghi, Dong Dang, Chi Ma, and Tan Thanh. Over the last two months, the number of vehicles heading to the border gates in Lang Son has increased sharply, as this is the main harvest season for many kinds of Vietnamese fruit.
Customs clearance information is provided to producers and processors to help them develop a reasonable export plan, said Tran Duc Giang, head of the Trade Management section of the provincial Department of Industry and Trade.
“We create optimal conditions for imports and exports passing through our territory, especially agricultural products. We encourage local Departments of Industry and Trade to keep up to date on the import/export situation in Lang Son and ask producers to strictly follow the processing and packaging requirements of importers,” said Giang.
He called on businesses “to take the initiative in contacting and connecting with Chinese partners to move goods by other modes of transport, such as railway or waterway. In addition, they should strengthen domestic sales promotion and connections to hedge against import/export problems.”
