Binh Thuan authorities want the Immigration Department to deport some Chinese nationals who operate illegally as dragon fruits traders in the central province.
They should also be prevented from entering Vietnam for a period, the province People’s Committee said in the recommendation.
So far this year 17 Chinese have been fined VND410 million (US$18,380) for working illegally as traders in the province without registering.
The Binh Thuan Immigration Agency has also reduced their residence period.
The Chinese hired or bought the facilities of indebted local traders.
Binh Thuan is Vietnam’s largest dragon fruit growing area.
