The province plans to focus on building and putting into operation new industrial parks and industrial clusters, contributing to attracting more enterprises, especially enterprises producing export items to boost the province's growth and import and export turnover.

Since the establishment of Ben Tre Customs Technical Team in 2016, the import and export turnover in the province only exceeded US$1,060 million, but after the two years, it increased to $1,554 million in 2018, up 47 percent compared to 2016, two years earlier than the province's target of reaching $1,500 million by 2020.

With the available potential, geographical position and increasing development of the province, especially the increasing number of enterprises, management activities of the State apparatus must be improved according to modern directions, with timely service and high quality, contributing to supporting enterprises in developing their productions, expanding markets, consuming products abroad. Stemming from that requirement, the leaders of Ben Tre province committed that the provincial government will coordinate, support and create the most favourable conditions for Ben Tre Customs Branch to operate.

Regarding organisational structure, the branch has two leaders and five officers. In the first time of operation, Ben Tre Customs Branch will continue to work at the headquarters of the current Ben Tre Customs Technical Team.

“After the ceremony, Ben Tre Customs Branch will immediately perform tasks to serve enterprises, on the basis of inheriting and transferring data from the Ben Tre Customs Technical Team to ensure smooth and effective operation,” Khanh said.
