The northern border province of Ha Giang and Baise city in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China will cooperate in border trade and management, helping build a Vietnam-China border line of peace, stability and mutual development.

The agreement was reached during talks between Vice Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of the People’s Committee of Ha Giang province Dam Van Bong and visiting Vice Secretary of Baise city’s Party Committee Huang Zhiwei in Ha Giang city on April 23.

Under the agreement, in 2011, the two sides will focus on cooperation in infrastructure building, especially the upgrading of a road running to marker No. 504 on the Vietnam-China border with the aim of facilitating people’s movement, thus boosting border trading activities and improving the living standards of residents living along the border.

Baise city promised to provide high-yield and high-quality plant varieties, cultivation methods and insect prevention techniques for Ha Giang and cooperate with the Vietnamese province in building models of small- and medium-sized husbandry farms and cattle-feed processing factories as well as in aquaculture.

Ha Giang asked Baise city to encourage China ’s businesses to survey and boost investment cooperation in the province. The Ha Giang leader said the provincial People’s Committee will create the best conditions for Chinese businesses to operate effectively in the locality.

For his part, Huang Zhiwei vowed to try his best to help strengthen and boost relations between Baise city and Ha Giang province in many fields./.
