The small city of Dongxing is located in the southwest of Guangxi, bordering Beibu Gulf in the southeast, and bordering Vietnam in the southwest. It is the only port city in China and ASEAN countries connected by land and sea.

Starting from Guizhou, Chongqing and other places to Vietnam, Dongxing City under the jurisdiction of Fangchenggang City is one of the land gateways. Dongxing City and Vietnam's Mang Street are only separated by a river. The people on both sides of the two countries are developing towards the side of the river, overlooking a city like the sky. Every day, multinational office workers, tourists, business people, and relatives come and go through the Beilun River Bridge.

Dongxing City is just across the river from Vietnam's Mang Market.

On March 19, 2019, China Dongxing-Vietnam Mangjie Port Beilunhe Second Bridge was opened. The physical customs clearance time of import and export goods at Dongxing Port has been greatly reduced. The normal customs clearance time for a single ticket has saved at least 30 minutes, and the annual freight volume of Dongxing Port has further increased.

Today, the flow of people, logistics, and finance in Dongxing City has become China's image window for the pursuit of peaceful cooperation, openness and tolerance, mutual learning and mutual benefit, and mutual benefit. With the establishment of the China-ASEAN Free Trade Area and the advancement of the "Belt and Road" initiative, the Dongxing National Key Development and Open Pilot Zone and Dongxing Port will play an increasingly important role in China's opening up.

Beilun River Bridge becomes a cooperative bridge

Dongxing and Vietnam's Mang Street are only separated by a Beilun River. The Beilun River Bridge on the river connects the two places. The national gates of China and Vietnam are opposite to each other, which makes Dongxing and Mang Street a unique pattern of "two countries and one city". The bridge across the Beilun River is 111 meters long, and a red and white horizontal line on the bridge surface marks the Sino-Vietnamese boundary line.

"Sir, do you need cigarettes?" Walking on the Fengqing Street around Beilun River and Beilun River Bridge in Dongxing City, Vietnamese women can be sold to tourists to sell small items such as Vietnamese cigarettes and accessories at any time.

The trade between Dongxing and Vietnam's Mount Street has a long history.

Since the 1890s, Dongxing has conducted mutual market trade with Mount Street, and the border between the two places has been close. Many people have relatives on both sides. Some of the people can speak Chinese and Vietnamese, and they visit each other on New Year's Day. Some residents of Mount Street also go to Dongxing Vegetable Market to buy vegetables.

In 1992, the State Council approved the establishment of the Dongxing Border Economic Cooperation Zone. The main areas of cooperation are mutual border trade, small border trade and tourism. At the same time, the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region approved the establishment of the Dongxing Development Zone.

For a time, ships on the Beilun River, the Sino-Vietnamese border trade trade and tourism shuttled on and off. On the highway from Dongxing to Nanning, there was a continuous stream of vehicles 24 hours a day. As an important node in China's ASEAN corridor, Dongxing Avenue is full of businessmen and tourists from all directions, and it has gradually prospered.

Two years later, the Beilunhe Bridge was rebuilt and opened. This bridge has more special meaning in the residents of Dongxing and Mangjie.

The construction of the Beilun River Bridge dates back to 1957, and was named "China-Vietnam Friendship Bridge" by China and Vietnam after its opening the following year. In the same year, the State Council approved the opening of Dongxing Port to the outside world. Its corresponding port is Mangjie Port in Vietnam. The Beilun River Bridge has become one of the important passages that open Guangxi.

In 1979, the China-Vietnam Friendship Bridge was blown up. With the gradual restoration of Sino-Vietnamese relations, the two sides negotiated to rebuild the bridge in 1992.

In 2003, the Central Committee decided to permanently settle the China-ASEAN Expo in Nanning, and Guangxi became a forefront and a major hub for opening up to ASEAN. Constructing an international corridor facing ASEAN, creating a new strategic fulcrum for the open and development of the southwest, central and southern regions, forming an important gateway for the 21st century maritime Silk Road and the economic integration of the Silk Road, has become the "three positionings" of Guangxi's open development.

"The new land, sea and sea corridor in the west has become a national strategy, and the responsibility of the Beilunhe Bridge is even greater." Gan Feng, deputy director of the Dongxing City Commercial and Port Management Bureau, said that the Beilunhe Bridge is not only a channel between the people in Dongxing and Mangjie. The ordinary bridge road also bears the common aspirations of openness, tolerance and peaceful development of the two countries.

Under these visions, the cooperation between Dongxing and Mount Street in labor service cooperation and tourism development has become closer.

Dongxing gathers multinational office workers

At around 9 am on November 14th, the 20-year-old Vietnamese girl Nguyen Thi Huai started walking from a rental house in Vietnam's Mang Street. After passing the checkpoint at Dongxing Port in China, she crossed the Beilunhe Bridge for more than 20 minutes. Place-a Vietnamese specialty store on Dongxing's pedestrian street.

On the same morning, Li Xingju, a citizen of Dongxing, carried a bag of Chinese goods and passed by Ruan on the Beilun River Bridge. She came to Vietnam's Mang Market and started a small business day.

In Dongxing's store, Ruan Shihuai speaks fluent Mandarin and sells specialties such as Vietnamese yogurt, coffee, ginger candy and dried passion fruit to tourists. "I like China very much and started learning Chinese the year before." Ruan Shihuai said, following her sister who was married to China, she came to Dongxing specialty store to work. "Every day Chinese tourists come to the store to buy Vietnamese specialties, and they communicate in Chinese This is a good place to learn Chinese. "

Nguyen Thi Huai's hometown is more than 500 kilometers away from Vietnam's Yen Bai Province. Last summer, after working in China, she rented a house in the area of Mangjie, opposite Dongxing, and commuted between Dongxing and Mangjie every day, becoming a "transnational office worker".

Go through the border checkpoints of China and Vietnam every day. Is it troublesome? "In fact, the customs clearance is very fast. There is no complicated procedure for border inspection. Most of the time, the customs clearance is completed within one minute. It feels no different from working in Vietnam." Ruan Sihuai said.

For more than a year at work, Ruan's Chinese has improved greatly, and she has also used WeChat. She sometimes added WeChat friends with tourists, and some tourists later bought Vietnamese specialties from her through WeChat.

At 6 o'clock in the afternoon, the tourists gradually dispersed, and Ruan's Huaiqing cleared up the goods and left for work.

According to preliminary statistics, in Dongxing, there are about 2,200 Vietnamese transnational office workers like Nguyen Thi Huai. According to the data of the Dongxing Human Resources Department, since the start of the Sino-Vietnamese cross-border labor service pilot in July 2015, 146 domestic workers have applied for “Employment Qualification Certificates” and have the qualifications to employ Vietnamese workers; 37 human resources companies For the "Labor Service Operation Certificate", Vietnamese workers can be legally dispatched to enterprises with qualifications for employment.

In the first half of this year, the Dongxing Experimental Zone collected the labor demand of enterprises. Many enterprises intend to hire overseas border laborers, and the demand number is about 3,000. Wages in China are also better and more attractive than Vietnam. This means that in the future, more Vietnamese will travel to and from Beilun River Bridge every day like Nguyen Thi Huai and become one of the transnational office workers.

Interaction between the two places spurs cross-border tourism

At 10 am on November 14th, the crowd of people in Dongxing's immigration permit hall was surging, and many tourists were applying for border travel documents.

"Crossing the Beilun River from Dongxing to Vietnam, I would like to see the folk customs there." A tourist from Hunan, Li Ming, drove his family to Dongxing with his family, preparing to report to a day trip to Mang Street, Vietnam. .

Vietnam Street at Dongxing Port is the first stop for many tourists. Cashews, Maoshan durian sugar, dried vegetables, coconut crisps and other Vietnamese specialties make visitors dizzying. "The first time I stepped abroad, what impressed me most about Vietnam was fruit, which is cheap and delicious." Liu Wen, a tourist from Guizhou, said.

How hot is cross-border tourism? "Three people will be able to join a group. Passengers can sign up with a qualified travel agency with their ID cards. At present, the hottest tourist item in Dongxing is Vietnam One-Day Tour of Mang Street." The number of outbound tourists has increased significantly, mainly from Sichuan, Hunan, Guizhou and Northeast China.

"There have been many cross-border tourists recently, including procedures such as exit and border inspection, which can basically complete the exit process in 20 minutes." Dongxing Entry-Exit Border Inspection Station inspector said that during the peak passenger flow, the border inspection station will send additional staff To ensure smooth passenger clearance.

They have created "China-Vietnam border customs tour", "two countries and four places" and other tourist routes, such as Dongxing-Vietnam Mangjie cross-border self-driving. Tour and the opening of the Guilin-Vietnam Halong Cross-Country Self-Driving Tour attracted more tourists.

Beilunhe Second Bridge “Relay” Carries Open Dream

Business travel has brought about a rapid increase in passenger flow, and brought prosperity to Dongxing and Mount Street. The Beilunhe Bridge is gradually unable to meet the needs of people and vehicles. Therefore, the second Beilunhe Bridge came into being.

"From the opening of the Beilunhe Bridge in 1994, over the past 20 years, trade at the border between the two countries has mainly been carried out through the Beilunhe Bridge. The increasing volume of goods between the two places, coupled with the" mixed movement of people and goods, "has often caused congestion at customs clearance. "Said Gan Feng, deputy director of the Dongxing City Commercial and Port Administration.

As the Beilunhe Bridge was rebuilt in the same year, the second Beilunhe Bridge was jointly built by China and Vietnam and was friendly. It started construction in 2014. The Beilunhe Second Bridge is located 3 kilometers downstream of the Beilunhe Bridge. The main bridge is 549 meters in length and the total deck width is 27.7 meters. On March 19 this year, the second Beilunhe Bridge was opened. The second bridge was used for freight transportation, and the Beilunhe Bridge was designed as a pedestrian passage.

The two bridges are used at the same time, realizing a good situation of human and cargo diversion and orderly customs clearance, laying a good foundation for the development of China-Vietnam border port logistics development and border trade. The Beilunhe Bridge was decompressed, ending the long-term inefficient clearance of "mixed people and goods"; the second bridge is more spacious and has higher clearance efficiency. At present, there are more than 300 vehicles entering and leaving the country each day. The Beilun River Bridge increased by 50%. Goods such as shoe materials, machinery and equipment from Dongguan, Fujian and other places were sent to Vietnam, and a lot of Vietnamese agricultural and sideline products also continuously entered China.

The opening of the Beilunhe Second Bridge also brings new opportunities for accelerating the construction of Dongxing as a hub city for the new land, sea, and sea in the western region, and for building a new pattern of openness, passage, and development.

In front of the company registration counter in the customs declaration hall of the Beilunhe Second Bridge at Dongxing Port, more than a dozen salespersons are applying to the customs for company record registration. Customs officers took the filing materials in a timely manner, carefully reviewed and checked the filing information, and then quickly printed out the “Customs Registration Receipt”. In just a few minutes, customs registration was completed for a company.

After the Beilunhe Second Bridge is opened, the declaration declaration, tax payment, and settlement can be completed in advance before the goods enter the site. The operation process has been optimized and integrated, and the customs supervision operation has been advanced and moved forward, and the customs clearance of goods has been greatly accelerated. , Enterprise logistics costs are also effectively reduced.

According to Liu Weiwei, the head of Dongxing Customs Comprehensive Business Section, in the first three quarters of this year, the overall customs clearance time of Dongxing Customs was 0.55 hours, and the overall import clearance time was 5.35 hours, both faster than other ports in Guangxi.

"Convenient customs clearance conditions have attracted more foreign trade and customs declaration enterprises to settle in." Liu Weiwei said that in the first three quarters of this year, Dongxing Customs added 213 registered enterprises, an increase of 33.3% year-on-year.

From the overload of the Beilunhe Bridge to the "relay" of the Second Bridge, it carries the common aspirations of China, Vietnam for openness, inclusiveness, and peaceful development. With the advancement of the new land, sea and sea corridor in the west, there may be three bridges on the Beilun River in the future. , Fourth Bridge ...
