On May 7, all seven road and one rail checkpoints in Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region capable of cargo transportation have resumed operation for normal customs clearance, said Yang Chunting, the director of the Department of Commerce of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

Three cities and eight counties and districts share the border with Vietnam, and some checkpoints, such as Youyiguan, Dongxing and Qinzhou Port, are convenient passageways for China to access Vietnam and other ASEAN countries.

Considering the COVID-19 pandemic situations in areas including Baise and Dongxing, several checkpoints were temporally closed.

Yang noted that Guangxi has set up a special working group to guide and urge local governments to resume operation of clearance inspections as soon as there are no cases of community transmission to minimize impacts caused by COVID-19 on cargo clearance.

Measures such as separating cargos in different areas and putting checkpoint staff members in close-loop management were carried out to increase the handling capacity of checkpoints.

Amid cross-border pandemic transmission, Guangxi has partnered with Vietnam in the prevention and control of COVID-19, creating an effective disposal program for Vietnamese people and cargo who have tested positive.

Guangxi will continue to work with relevant ministries to guarantee the stability of China-ASEAN industry and supply chains, according to Yang.
