In 2019, the total value of import, export, sale and exchange of goods through border gates at the locality is estimated at US$7.2 billion, up 23% against the same period last year and fulfilling the set plan, of which the exports and imports hit US$2.568 billion and US$1.134 billion, respectively. 

Deputy head of the province’s department of industry and trade Nguyen Truong Giang said that the province and Yunnan Province have always enhanced cooperation and friendship, upholding the bridging role in Con Minh-Lao Cai-Ha Noi-Hai Phong-Quang Ninh Economic Corridor and ASEAN-China Free Trade Area.
