HCMC – Chinese customs officials have recently approved the Mong Cai-Dongxing international border gate pair as an entry point for agricultural goods from Vietnam, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
Farm trade will be facilitated through the Bac Luan 2 Bridge, one of the two bridges crossing the Ka Long River. It forms a 60-kilometer natural boundary between Quang Ninh Province and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China.
The Mong Cai-Dongxing border crossing pair could accommodate up to 200,000 tons of agricultural exports annually. It reopened on February 21 following a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The pair of two border gates is now the second entry point for agricultural products from Vietnam and other regional nations entering the Chinese market, after the Huu Nghi (Friendship) International Border Gate in Lang Son Province.
The Tan Thanh Border Gate, part of the Huu Nghi International Border Gate, is also a major gateway for Vietnam-China farm trade.
