Beijing (VNA) – Vietnam and China on November 27 began a joint campaign against the smuggling of drugs, firearms, counterfeit money, endangered animals and plants as well as unquarantined products.

The five-month campaign is run by customs authorities of Vietnam’s Quang Ninh, Lang Son, and Cao Bang provinces which share borderline with China, and the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China.

According to China’s General Administration of Customs, customs of both sides will discuss single-window clearance, recognise prioritised enterprises, enhance information sharing on smuggling activities and join hands to improve efficiency of the fight against cross-border smuggling.-VNA
