Vietnam requested China to stop Covid-19 inspections on Vietnam imports

Vietnam requested China to stop Covid-19 inspections on Vietnam imports

The Ministry of Industry and Trade has requested China to stop Covid-19 inspections on agriculture, aquaculture, and frozen products imported from Vietnam.

The request was made in a diplomatic note sent by Vietnam’s Minister of Industry and Trade Nguyen Hong Dien to China’s General Administration of Customs.

According to the ministry's Asia-Africa Market Department, the tightened policies for pandemic control for products exported to China have caused great difficulties for Vietnam’s producers and exporters.

Since the beginning of last year, China has been tightening its import policies to mitigate Covid-19 risks and inspecting imported goods, resulting in cargo congestion at Vietnam’s northern border gates with China.

With the pandemic situation worsens in several countries in the region, the ministry says there is a high chance of China, Laos, and Cambodia continuing to tighten Covid-19 prevention measures at border gates, hindering two-way trade.

It has requested China, Laos, and Cambodia cooperate with Vietnam in implementing pandemic control procedures at border gates, ensuring both Covid-19 prevention and trade flow.

The ministry said that it will closely track pandemic prevention measures and import-export of goods at the border gates to ensure quick handling of any difficulties arising in cross-border trade.

According to the General Statistics Office, Vietnam exported $104 billion worth of goods in the first four months of 2021, up 28 percent year-on-year.

Exports to China reached $17 billion during the period, a year-on-year increase of 32.4 percent.
