The event makes an important contribution to promoting economic, trade and tourism relations between the two sides.
Bac Luan II Bridge is located about 3.2 km from the existing Bac Luan Bridge downstream on the Ka Long River. The bridge has a total length of 618 meters, of which 463.5 meters was built by China and 154.5 meters by Vietnam, with the total investment of the Vietnam side amounting to VND 336 billion.
The Bac Luan Bridge II is expected to make a great contribution to reducing the traffic flow through Bac Luan Bridge I, promoting trade development between Vietnam and China, meeting the demand for transporting goods and passengers and facilitating trade between the two countries.
The operation of the inter-sectoral control station of Bac Luan Bridge II will also improve the capacity of checking and controlling entry and exit activities, such as import and export activities of goods and services, while, at the same time, ensuring border order and security, synchronous development and unified technical infrastructure in border areas.
According to the report of Mong Cai Gate Border Customs Sub-Department, in the first day of customs clearance, there were more than 100 vehicles carrying out import-export procedures through Bac Luan Bridge II.
