Women and Social Change along the Vietnam-Guangxi Border

  • Xie Guangmao


The year 1989 saw the opening of Guangxi province in China to the outside world, and in particular to Vietnam via the townships along the southern border of the province. Since then there has been a growing number of people from the frontier regions participating in various trading activities. They have grasped this chance to flex their business muscles and intelligence, and although they have had to overcome all sorts of difficulties, they have profited considerably from the China-Vietnam trading business. This chapter focuses on the border township of Dongxing situated on the eastern seaboard.
