Authorities in Lang Son Province, northern Vietnam have rejected claims being circulated on social media that some China-bound Vietnamese agricultural products are failing customs clearance at the province’s border gates. Border gates in Lang Son are operational, Hoang Khanh Duy, deputy head of the management board for the Dong Dang - Lang Son border gate economic zone, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Wednesday afternoon. Competent forces at these border gates are carrying out customs inspections as usual, especially for fresh Vietnamese fruits, Duy affirmed. These six border gates are Huu Nghi, Tan Thanh, Coc Nam, Chi Ma, Na Hinh, and Dong Dang Stations. Customs forces in the province process customs clearance procedures for around 1,100-1,200 trucks per day, with some 400-450 vehicles carrying Vietnamese exports.
