Lang Son Province’s People’s Committee has required functional agencies and enterprises to ensure COVID-19 prevention and control works and facilitate customs activities as regulated. 

The People's Committee of Lang Son also assigned Lang Son Health Department to work with relevant authorities and units to organise the inspection of Covid-19 prevention in border areas.

Lang Son Customs Department and Lang Son Border Defence force should direct Customs-Border Defence units to prepare for implementing cargo clearance immediately after the Chinese agree.

Earlier in May, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc allowed the re-opening of sub-border gates and border crossings to resume trading activities between Viet Nam and China.

Accordingly, the PM has also allowed the people's committees of border provinces to resume operation of other sub-border gates and border check-points in those provinces based on the local situation and the Government’s existing regulations on management of land border gates and border trade activities.

The localities only re-open the sub-border gates through which a large volume of goods are transported, especially agricultural and aquatic products for export and import raw materials for domestic production which are permitted to trade via the border gates by local authorities of the two sides.

According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade’s Import-Export Department, as of May 11, 797 trucks carrying exports and 845 trucks carrying imports had completed customs clearance at border gates in provinces bordering China.
