The Lao Cai international border gate and the China’s He Kou border station established their twinning ties on September 25.

They are the first units along the Vietnam-China border to establish such relations with the aim of carrying out the policy of fostering their friendship, cooperation and development.

The event manifests the goodwill of both sides in facilitating the immigration and import-export activities for both peoples and overseas visitors, benefiting the economic growth of each country.

It also contributes to enhancing the bilateral cooperation in border crossing management, crime prevention and professional and friendly exchanges.

The Lao Cai border gate and the Ke Kou border station have served as a bridge to facilitate the trade and socio-cultural exchanges between the northwest of Vietnam and the southwest of China.-VNA
