The Erenhot China-Mongolia border trading zone in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region is about to open after closing for 1018 days. The border crossing will open at 08:00 a.m. on 8 January, 2023.
With a total investment of 350 million yuan (about 52.5 million U.S. dollars) and an area of some 100,000 square meters, the trading zone in the city of Erenhot covers a wide range of business activities including border trade, logistics and e-commerce, among other cross-border business services.
The city of Erenhot, in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, is just 9 km from Zamyn Uud, in Dornogobi province in south‑eastern Mongolia, where the Mongolian government is building a free trade zone. Erenhot is the largest centre of rail and road links between China and Mongolia, and as such is a vital strategic location in cross‑border co‑operation between the two countries.
