HÀ NỘI – Việt Nam will have some 116 warehouses at the border gates with Laos and Cambodia by 2035, according to the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
Under Decision 229/QĐ-BCT issued on January 23, the ministry said it would develop professional and modern warehouses with enough logistics services to keep import and export goods at these border gates.
The warehousing system will promote sustainable development of import and export activities along the border lines, especially exports at border gates along border lines between Việt Nam and the two countries.
According to specific targets of the plan, by 2025, the warehousing system will meet all demand of the area and have enough capacity to store import and export goods at the border gate regions.
Eighty per cent of the warehouses will be required to provide important and necessary logistics services, such as storage, handling, inspection and implementation of customs procedures for import and export goods.
The plan includes the upgrade or building of at least one warehouse at an international border gate region or a major border gate to meet the demand of import and export goods. All goods under the warehousing system will be inspected for quality, food hygiene, safety and other related standards.
The ministry expected the plan to ensure stability and step-by-step promote growth of imports and exports at border gates along border lines between Việt Nam and the two countries.
By 2035, all border gates along those border lines will have a completed warehousing system, including 116 existing and newly-built warehouses, to meet all warehousing demand for import and export goods and provide synchronous logistics services for promoting rapid and sustainable development of import and export activities, the ministry said. — VNS
