NDO/VNA – Twenty-one container trucks of dragon fruit, weighing 315 tonnes, and a lorry carrying wood, valued at nearly VND5 billion in total, underwent customs clearance at Thanh Thuy International Border Gate in the northern province of Ha Giang on February 18-19.

Head of the customs office at the border gate Luong Trung Kien said this was the first batch of exports to go through clearance in 2020.

After the Tianbao International Border Gate in China’s Yunnan Province resumed operation, officials at Thanh Thuy International Border Gate have offered all possible support for exports-imports, he said.

In the context of the outbreak of the acute respiratory disease caused by a novel coronavirus (COVID-19), shipments of Vietnamese farm produce to China at major border gates were suspended. Several border gates neighbouring China have recently resumed operation.
