Exports of several kinds of farm produce to China via Lao Cai border gate (the northern border province of Lao Cai) increased in the first quarter of this year despite the COVID-19 pandemic, said deputy head of the border gate’s customs branch Tran Anh Tu on April 1. As of the end of Q1, export revenues of watermelon hit over 8.4 million USD, a year-on-year surge of 190 percent; while those of mango stood at 7.4 million USD, up 11.5 times compared to the same period last year. However, earnings from dragon fruit, cassava and tapioca starch strongly declined in the reviewed period. The export of machinery and industrial goods through the border gate has almost stopped since the beginning of the year. VNA Photo: Quốc Khánh
