According to the Department of Industry and Trade of Long An province, in the first 9 months of 2019, the import and export turnover under the province's commercial contracts reached over 10.2 million USD, up 85.8 percent over the same period in 2018.

In which, export reached over 3.16 million USD, up 27.8 percent; import reached 7.07 million USD, up 132.8 percent over the same period. Major export and import products were styrofoam, PS plastic lunch boxes, instant noodles, wine, cigarettes, duty-free shop consumer goods, combined harvesters, and so on.

In addition, the value of goods (mainly exports) traded across the land border was 4.09 billion VND, an increase of 37 times over the same period in 2018. The main products were construction materials such as baked bricks, cement, wire mesh, concrete piles and agricultural products. Besides, there were products that were locally produced by residents on both sides of the border to sell for daily use. From the beginning of the year until now, there have been no procedures for importing and exporting rice products through border gates.

According to the assessment, the inspection and supervision at the border gate comply with the current law provisions; create favorable conditions for export, import and exchange of goods for border residents. The functional authorities often coordinate closely in patrol and control to prevent, detect and promptly handle smuggling and illegal transportation of goods across borders as well as mobilized people not to participate, support smuggling./.
