The southwestern province of Tay Ninh has decided to open three more auxiliary border gates and 10 paths along the boundary bordering Svay Rieng and Kompong Cham provinces of Cambodia .

The move aims to facilitate travel and trade for local residents as well as to enhance the friendship between the provinces.

The provincial People’s Committee has entrusted the Department of Foreign Services to finalise all necessary procedures so that local authorities can officially sign with their Cambodian counterparts.

Tay Ninh and border provinces of Cambodia have to date opened two international border gates on the common borderline, namely Moc Bai – Ba Vet and Xa Mat – Trapeng Plong, four main and 10 auxiliary border gates. Two-way trade through these border gates reaches almost 1 billion USD each year./.
