Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc approved the resumption of imports, exports and transport of goods through three sub-border gates between Viet Nam and China to help local firms.

He agreed with the Ministry of Industry and Trade's proposal to resume activities through the sub-border gates of Tan Thanh and Coc Nam in Lang Son Province and a sub-border in Km3 + 4 in Hai Yen ward, Quang Ninh Province.

Phuc signed official order No 224, which ordered the removal of bottlenecks for export-import activities and trading of goods in border regions in the face of the acute respiratory disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus (Covid-19).

Phuc requested the Ministry of Health to promptly work with relevant agencies in building regulations on medical examination, trading of goods, and entry and exit of vehicles and drivers at sea ports, airports, border gates and on the railways.

This aims to create optimal conditions and step up customs clearance for exports and imports, while ensuring disease prevention and control.

Accordingly, drivers must wear protective clothing, face masks and take hygienic measures at border gates’ quarantine areas before coming back to Viet Nam. — VNS
