Tay Ninh: Chang Riec upgraded to main border gate

Tay Ninh, March 24 (VNA) – The Chang Riec auxiliary border gate in Tan Bien district of southern Tay Ninh province, which borders Cambodia, was upgraded to a main border gate on March 24.

The Chang Riec main border gate is contiguous to the Da border gate in Tboung Khmum province of Cambodia. The convenient location and upgraded infrastructure of the gate will facilitate more trade connectivity between the two localities.

According to the Tay Ninh provincial customs sector, the flow of goods and import-export turnover through the Chang Riec border gate increase constantly. Last year, the gate served 98,588 people and 71,063 vehicles with total import-export turnover reaching 560 million USD.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Pham Van Tan said that over the past years, the Chang Riec border gate has served the demands of travel and trading for both localities’ people and businesses, contributing to socio-economic development and trade cooperation between Vietnam and Cambodia.

He asked Tboung Khmum province and relevant offices to maintain close management of the Chang Riec – Da border gate to facilitate the two sides’ trade exchange and socio-economic development, thus helping build a border line of peace, friendship, cooperation and development.

Tay Ninh shares a 240-km border with Cambodia’s Svay Rieng, Prey Vieng and Tboung Khmum provinces. It now has Moc Bai and Xa Mat international border gates, Ka Tum and Chang Riec main border gates, and 12 auxiliary gates.
