Thai fruit growers will have a new gateway to China

New Mohan railway checkpoint in Yunnan will be opened in early December

According to Alongkorn Ponlaboot, an adviser to the agriculture minister who also sits on the Thailand Fruit Board, Thai fruit can now be transported to the mainland via the Laos-China railway. The railway connects the Laotian capital of Vientiane, which shares a border with Thailand’s Nong Khai province, and China’s Kunming city in Yunnan.

Construction of the Mohan checkpoint was completed on November 22 and it would go into operation on December 3 as scheduled. December 3 marks the first anniversary of the start of the Laos-China railway.

In a move to help with the new transport option, the Fruit Board will hold a meeting with fruit growers, cooperatives, middlemen, fruit associations, exporters and logistics operators to educate them about relevant rules and regulations, Alongkorn added.
