Mong Cai City in Quang Ninh Province has nearly completed preparations for resuming customs clearance at Mong Cai International Border Gate in the near future.

The Mong Cai border gate has been closed since January 31 due to the novel coronavirus epidemic. Mong Cai City and Dongxing City, which run the Mong Cai – Dongxing international border gate, have discussed preventive measures and scenarios for resuming customs clearance.

The two cities have yet to choose a date to resume customs clearance at the border.

Despite the epidemic, Quang Ninh has not adjusted its economic growth targets. Therefore, the province needs to resume operation at its international border gates as soon as possible.

When Mong Cai International Border Gate resumes operations, vehicles transporting goods between Viet Nam and China will be disinfected before entry and exit. Meanwhile, workers loading and unloading goods and drivers will face strict measures to avoid infection.

The city will work with trade authorities to solve difficulties for import-export enterprises, as well as find measures to improve cargo handling capacity at border gates.

Mong Cai border gate is one of the most important international border gates in the Viet Nam and China trade relationship.

Customs Sub-department of the Mong Cai International Border Gate estimated its budget collection to reach VND1 trillion in 2019. - VNS
