|May 14,2018--In the first quarter of 2018, the total value of borderers' trade in Tibet reached 3.7302 million yuan, 3.3 times higher than the same period last year, according to the Lhasa Customs.
The growth of borderers' trade mainly benefit from four aspects. The one aspect is that during the 2018 Spring Festival and Tibetan New Year period, Chinese borders' demands for festival goods such as butter, instant food, Tibetan incense, candy and so on are increased obviously. The other aspect is that Chinese borderers' demands for daily necessities native to Nepal such as hair dye, soap, toothpaste and so on are increasing year by year. One aspect is that infrastructure of border ports is improved gradually. The other aspect is that customs procedures are further simplified.
As the temperature is rising and seasonal ports including Pulan and Yadong are opened in May, the borderers' trade of Tibet Autonomous Region is expected to continue to grow in the second quarter. Next, Lhasa Customs will further strengthen policy propaganda, optimize regulatory process, improve service quality, purify trading environment, expand trade space for border residents, and reduce customs clearance costs.
