Vietnam helps Laos build border check-point

Vietnam has provided over VND29.5 billion for Laos between 2008 and 2010 to build a cross-border check-point at the Phu Cua International Border Gate in Attapeu province, according to the Central Highland province of Kon Tum’s Department of Planning and Investment.

Covering a site of 27,000 sq.m, the check-point will include a two-storey office block which will accommodate an inspections room, a guard post, a rest room for staff, the electricity and water systems, a parking area and a garden.

Once operational in 2010, the check-point, together with the Bo Y-Phu Cua International Border Gate, will facilitate trading and tourism activities between Kon Tum province and localities in Laos, which will strengthen diplomatic ties amongst nations along the East-West Economic Corridor.

Apart from helping Attapeu province to build the check-point in Kon Tum province has also helped to conduct surveys and comprehensive socio-economic development plans for the Dak Bar border gate in Sekong province’s Dak Chung district.
