HA GIANG (VNS) — Several co-operation agreements were signed at the fifth meeting of a working group between Viet Nam's four northern mountainous provinces of Ha Giang, Lao Cai, Lai Chau and Dien Bien and China's Yunnan province yesterday.

They include an agreement on co-ordination regulations on border labour management between Ha Giang and Yunnan, and another on co-operation between Ha Giang's Dong Van Karst Plateau and Yunnan's Shi Lin (Stone Forest) National Park.

Speaking at the event in Ha Giang, Yunnan's Deputy Governor Gao Shu Xun said that relations between his province and the Vietnamese border localities had developed strongly in recent years.

In the time to come, Yunnan would continue its co-operation with the Vietnamese side in order to enhance the comprehensive strategic co-operation partnership between China and Viet Nam, he added.

According to vice chairman of the Ha Giang provincial People's Committee Nguyen Minh Tien, after the fourth meeting held in Yunnan in June 2012, both sides sped up co-operation in the management of borders and border gates so as to maintain peace and stability and facilitate the travel of humans and goods exchanges.

Deputy Foreign Minister Dang Minh Khoi said enhancing friendship and mutually beneficial co-operation between border localities was important to the two countries' relations.

Since 2012, the localities' import-export value reached nearly $5 billion. They also made progress in collaborating to build transport infrastructure. — VNS
