Lang Son province (VN) and the People's Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region (China) have agreed to sign a Framework Agreement on promoting the pilot construction of a smart border gate between Vietnam and China.
The two sides agreed to jointly promote the pilot construction of a smart border gate at the dedicated freight transport routes at the Huu Nghi (Vietnam) - Huu Nghi Quan (China) and Tan Thanh (Vietnam) - Puzhai (China) international border gates.
According to the proposal of the Chinese side, the smart border gate will be built under two models: intelligent air-borne rail transport and ground-based autonomous guided vehicles (AGV).
Recently, at the Conference to implement the framework agreement on promoting the pilot construction of smart border gates, Chairman of the People's Committee of Lang Son province, Ho Tien Thieu said:

This model will improve the capacity and efficiency of customs clearance, thereby enhancing the competitive advantage of Lang Son, attracting businesses to carry out import and export activities through Lang Son province.
