Vietnam and Laos have agreed to intensify inspection work following the “one-stop-shop” model at the Lao Bao-Dansavanh international border gates.

Lieut. Gen. Vo Trong Viet, Commander of the Vietnamese Border Guards and Major General Bounthieng Chanthamounkhoun from the Lao Ministry of Public Security signed a Memorandum of Understanding on June 26 in Vientiane.

Accordingly, agencies of the two sides will be enabled to supervise import-export and entry-exit activities to help realise the cross-border transport facilitation agreement between Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS) countries.

Both Vietnamese and Lao officials have closely worked together over the past time in border gate management, which contributes to the strengthening of the special friendship between the two countries.

The “one-stop-shop” customs mechanism aims to simplify administrative procedures and facilitate the flow of vehicles and goods.-VNA
