However, while some enjoy high selling prices, others are still tiredly seeking buyers. Adding to that serious problem is the continuous congestion at the northern border gates, severely harming export produce.
Aware of the trouble passengers have encountered when they need to catch a taxi home, along with the messy state created by illegal tech-based taxis, Tan Son Nhat International Airport yesterday announced that it will cooperate with TCP Parking Garage in front of the domestic station to allow cars to use D1 lane for picking up and dropping off purposes.
By December 10, around 4,000 trucks carrying agricultural products and goods had been jammed for having not been able to make customs clearance in Lang Son Province while parking lots were fully occupied.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade (MoIT) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) have recently put forward recommendations to prevent that situation from recurring this year.
