Based on results achieved in 2019, Minister Dung requested the General Department of Vietnam Customs accomplish the State revenue target in 2020 assigned by the National Assembly, the Government and the Ministry of Finance, strive to surpass 5 percent of the estimate in accordance with the direction of the Prime Minister.
