First market to be built in Vietnam-Cambodia border

Tay Ninh, April 18 (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh has approved plans to build a market to facilitate trade development and improve the living conditions of residents along the Vietnam-Cambodia border.

On April 17, the Tay Ninh People’s Committee said that the market, the first to be built by Vietnam at the neighbouring country’s suggestion, will be located in Cambodia’s Memot district, Tbaung Khmum province, bordering with Vietnam’s Tan Bien district, southwest Tay Ninh province.

The Ministry of Planning and Investment will work with the Ministry of Finance on the project’s capital allocation. The Ministry of Trade and Industry will work in consultation with relevant bodies and the neighbouring country to issue regulations on the facility’s operations.

The Government also requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs upgrade the Chang Riec border gate in Tay Ninh to facilitate the supervision and management of trade while ensuring social order and security in the border area.
