A Myanmar delegation, headed by Union Minister for Commerce U Aung Naing Oo conducted an inspection of trade activities at the China-Viet Nam border town of Pingxiang and visited the China-ASEAN Fruit Trading Centre in Nanning, the People’s Republic of China’s Guangxi Autonomous Region yesterday.
The delegation’s first stop was at the Friendship Checkpoint in Pingxiang, where they closely examined the processes involved in border trade.
It is one of the nine renowned border stations in China, strategically located at the intersection of the Hunan-Guangxi Railway and China’s national highways, connecting to the Vietnamese highway network.
Subsequently, the Union minister and the delegation proceeded to the Fuqiang Trade Terminal in Pingxiang, where they observed goods inspection procedures. The Fuqiang Trade Terminal is situated in the southwestern part of Pingxiang, sharing a border with Van Lang prefecture in Tinh Lang Son state, Viet Nam.
Continuing their journey, the Myanmar delegation visited the China-ASEAN Fruit Trade Centre in Pingxiang. They gained insights into the importation of fruits from Viet Nam and Thailand to China. The centre facilitates the mutual import and export of fruits between ASEAN countries and China. Fruits imported from ASEAN nations are transferred, loaded into containers, and then distributed to major Chinese cities.
Similarly, agricultural produce and fruits from China find their way to ASEAN countries. Key exports include jackfruit, dragon fruit, bananas, watermelons, muskmelons, durian, and mangosteen from ASEAN countries, while fruits, beans, and pulses are shipped from China to ASEAN nations.
In the afternoon, the delegation, led by the Union minister, visited the Shuikou border trading post in Pingxiang. The Shuikou border trade station is located 184 kilometres from Viet Nam, connecting with Longzhou Prefecture.
Concluding their visit, the Union minister and the delegation explored the Nahua Private Border Trade Zone.
Pingxiang plays a pivotal role as one of the primary border terminal ports for transporting fruits by land from ASEAN countries, including Viet Nam, into China. It holds immense potential for collaboration with Myanmar’s fruit export sector, promising new opportunities for trade and economic cooperation. — MNA/TS
