Tay Ninh (VNA) – Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of southwestern Tay Ninh province Duong Van Thang has recently signed a decision approving a detail construction planning scheme for Tan Nam international border gate in Tan Bien district.

The border gate will cover an area of over 43 ha, 34 ha of which are forest land for special use.

The gate will be opposite Cambodia’s Mien Chay border gate in Cam Chay Mia district, Pray Veng province. They stand at some 150 km from Ho Chi Minh City and 120 km from Phnom Penh.

The Tan Nam international border gate is expected to shorten the travelling time between Vietnam, Cambodia, and other countries; facilitate imports-exports; and ensure state management of trade, services, immigration, and national defence-security. Due to its location in the Lo Go-Xa Mat national park, it will also look to develop itself into an eco-tourism border gate.

The border gate will be home to administrative agencies, a border guard station, shopping outlets, warehouses, and parking lots.

During 2019-2020, Tay Ninh will build a border guard station and upgrade road 791. Later during 2021-2030, it will expand Tan Nam bridge as well as upgrade technical infrastructure along a major road passing through the gate and other facilities.

The PM had also approved the upgrade of the Tan Nam auxiliary border gate into international one.–VNA
