Prime Minister Phạm Minh Chính has asked relevant ministries and authorities to urgently develop measures to prevent congestion at border gates with China in the northern region during the peak harvest season of major fruits. In recent days, the number of trucks carrying agricultural products for export has increased dramatically at border gates in Lạng Sơn Province. At the same time, the time for processing customs clearance was prolonged due to limited customs clearance capacity, causing congestion at border gates.
The Department of Industry and Trade in Lang Son Province, which borders China, recently sent a document to businesses and traders, warning about the situation related to exports to China through Huu Nghi International Border Gate.
The Vietnam Fruit and Vegetable Association forecast that the fruit and vegetable export to China will increase sharply in the coming time as some kinds of fruit are entering the peak harvest season. Jackfruit, mango, durian and dragon fruit are popular with Chinese consumers.
