From the beginning of the litchi season, 53,000 tons of litchi have been exported to China.

Mr. Nguyen Van Binh, vice president of Lang Son province, said at a conference of the Ministry of Finance on Friday that after China’s deployment of its oil rig in Vietnam’s waters, exports via border gates in Lang Son were still normal.

Total exports and imports in the province in the first half of 2014 reached 53% of the plan, up 23% over the same period. Budget revenue from import and export activities was nearly 54% of the target, up 44%.

For fruit exports, Binh said that so far this year there were 1,800 truck trips carrying fruit from Vietnam to China through Lang Son border gates. For litchi alone, about 53,000 tons were transported to China.

Huu Nghi border gate in Lang Son province is one of nine border gates with China with the large amount of goods clearance.

At the meeting in late June, leaders of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development said China was tightening monitoring of border trade with Vietnam, leading to instability in the agricultural produce market since Vietnamese agricultural products are mainly exported to China through the border.

However, Deputy Minister Vu Van Tam has confirmed that the ministry has taken necessary response measures.
