HCMC – Vietnamese traders exported more than 580 tons of farm produce to China on the second day of a border gate being reopened in the northern mountainous province of Lao Cai following a suspension in an attempt to prevent the spread of a new coronavirus.

Vietnamese and Chinese authorities on Saturday resumed customs clearance for imports and exports at Kim Thanh II international border gate in the province, reported the Vietnam News Agency.

On the first day of customs clearance resumption, a total of 54 Chinese agricultural product trucks were licensed to enter Vietnam, while eight Vietnamese farm produce trucks were allowed to enter Chinese territory.

One day later, as many as 580 tons of Vietnamese farm produce worth more than US$266,000 were shipped to the northern neighbor, while Chinese traders exported agricultural goods worth over US$328,000 to Vietnam.

Vietnam has set up a quarantine area at the border gate for all trucks entering from China. After being sterilized, these trucks are driven by Vietnamese drivers to complete the process for customs clearance and trading, which is closely supervised.

After the goods are unloaded, the trucks are taken to the quarantine area and handed over to Chinese drivers.
