Lang Son (VNA) - The northern border province of Lang Son on December 24 held a working session regarding COVID-19 preventives measures at border gates so as to create optimal conditions for exports-imports.

To gradually address bottlenecks and speed up customs procedures, relevant departments, sectors and agencies must ensure COVID-19 prevention and control work, especially at border gates, and maintain them as COVID-19-free areas, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Ho Tien Thieu said at the event.

The local health sector is asked to propose the People’s Committee issue a document requesting those who ship their products abroad through Lang Son to show certificates on COVID-19 prevention and control. 

The province also plans to urge Chinese agencies to accept the results of disinfection in Vietnam, which is believed to facilitate customs procedures. 

The selection of prioritised export items and suitable control methods must be drafted and submitted to the provincial People’s Committee by January 10, 2022.

Competent agencies and local authorities are urged to take the initiative in holding talks and exchanging information with the Chinese side to tackle difficulties in customs procedures./.
