China is ready to increase the opening hours of border crossings on the border with Primorsky Krai, as this will increase the volume of Russian exports of seaside products to Southeast Asian countries.
“Chinese partners are ready to increase the working time of border crossings to four hours, to make them round-the-clock. This is of great importance for the Primorsky Territory, exporters. At the same time, it is necessary for our customs and border services to look at their staff and their capabilities. We will organize this work and send relevant proposals to the Chinese side,” the governor said after the meeting.
In addition, Kozhemyako spoke about China’s readiness to introduce a visa-free regime for tourist groups. It will allow tourists from both countries to move more freely across the land border. In the future, it is proposed to resume rail transportation through the Suifenhe checkpoint.
The governor added that Chinese partners are interested in expanding the supply of environmentally friendly products from Primorsky Krai, for example, lime honey.
