Notably, situations of trading, illegal transportation of drugs, fireworks in the border region of Lang Son province are still complicated. Although the functional forces in the province have strengthened checking, controlling the border, but due to high profit, these illegal acts are still going on with more sophisticated, reckless tricks.

Statistics show that, from the beginning of the year, all units in Lang Son Customs Department detected, arrested and settled 315 cases of smuggling, trade fraud and violations of Customs procedures; the exhibits estimately worth over 19.2 billion VND.
