Quang Ninh’s communes build friendly relations with Chinese town

Hanoi, June 21 (VNA) – Hoanh Mo and Dong Van communes, Binh Lieu district, in Vietnam’s northeast province of Quang Ninh, have inked an agreement to set up friendly relations with Chinese town of Dong Zhong in Fangchenggang city, the southern province of Guangxi. 

They are the first administrative units at the commune-town level on the Vietnam-China land border line to sign the agreement. 

At the signing ceremony in Dong Zhong on June 20, the two sides agreed to set up friendly rapports based on the principle of equality for mutual benefits. 

They concurred to conduct cooperation exchanges in Party organisation, culture, border gate building, and border trade as well as promoting economics and implementing projects. 

Both sides were unanimous to boost awareness-raising campaigns for residents living in the shared border areas to protect the border landmarks, to not change the flow of cross-border rivers and streams, and to seriously implement the agreement on Vietnam-China land border management regulations and three legal documents on border protection and management. 

At the same time, the two sides will be enhancing coordination in cross-border crime prevention and maintenance of border order and security.

The diplomatic activities between Binh Lieu district and Fangchenghang city have been reinforced and developed over the past time. Seven hamlets in Binh Lieu have established twin ties with four hamlets in Fangchenggang.
