Chen said the next step involves continuing to explore the market for border trade, promoting the prosperity and development of mutual market activities on both sides.

From January to September of this year, the import and export value of the port reached 16.93 billion yuan ($2.32 billion), with exports amounting to 16.43 billion yuan, reflecting a year-on-year growth of 51.8 percent.

Chen Feiyun, a local shop owner, said that the booming business this year has increased his income.

While benefiting local residents, it has also created opportunities for businesses. Lei Bingqiao, from a trade company, said that vehicles from the Kazakh side in the mutual trade zone can directly reach the on-site processing enterprises, enhancing trade speed and saving costs.
