TAY NINH (VNS) – Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh has approved plans to build a market to improve trade and living conditions of residents along the Viet Nam-Cambodia border.
The Tay Ninh People's Committee said last Friday that the market, the first to be built by Viet Nam at the neighbouring country's suggestion, will be located in Cambodia's Memot district, Tbaung Khmum province, which shares a border with Viet Nam's Tan Bien district in southwest Tay Ninh province.
The Ministry of Planning and Investment will work with the Ministry of Finance on the project's capital allocation. In addition, the Ministry of Trade and Industry will work, in consultation with relevant bodies and Cambodia, to issue regulations on the facility's operations.
The government also requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to upgrade the Chang Riec border gate in Tay Ninh to facilitate the supervision and management of trade activities and to ensure social order and security in the border area. — VNS
