The Dongxing-Mong Cai cross-border economic cooperation zone is an important platform for the opening up and cooperation between China and ASEAN that is currently under construction, with a planned area of 84 square kilometers.
The zone will make full use of the resources and markets in both China and ASEAN to develop cross-border distinctive industries spanning import and export processing trade, cross-border finance, cross-border tourism, as well as cross-border e-commerce.
After its construction is completed, Luofu Avenue will connect multiple traffic arteries in Dongxing-Mong Cai cross-border economic cooperation zone.
The port investment company invested in by Guangxi Beibu Gulf Investment Group Co Ltd unveiled on that day will cover a total area of around 3,500 mu (233.33 hectares), with an overall investment of about 10 billion yuan ($1.5 billion). The company will manage the investment, construction, operation, and management of the logistics industrial park in Dongxing-Mong Cai cross-border economic cooperation zone.
