Concluding the conference, Director General Nguyen Van Can reviewed, analyzed and assessed more clearly the outstanding results of the whole sector in the first six months of the year.

Regarding the performance in the last six months of 2022, the tasks set for the whole sector were very difficult. Besides the goals and tasks in the draft report of the General Department of Vietnam Customs, Director General Nguyen Van Can requested the sector to focus on performing the groups of key tasks as follow:

Firstly, gathering resources to urgently complete and submit to the Government for promulgation decrees: a decree stipulating the management mechanism, methods, order and procedures for quality inspection and food safety inspection for imported goods; a decree on amending and supplementing a number of articles of Decree No. 08/2015/ND-CP and Decree No. 59/2018/ND-CP of the Government stipulating in detail and measures to implement Law on Customs on customs procedures, inspection, supervision and control; a decree on customs management of imported and exported goods transacted via e-commerce; and a decree stipulating the connection and information sharing in the field of export, import, goods transit, exit, entry, transit of people and vehicles under the National Single Window.

At the same time, continuing to effectively implement professional measures in the fight against drug-related crime.

Regarding post-clearance audits, it is necessary to strengthen the information collection, analysis and evaluation to develop effective post-clearance audit topics.

"It is necessary to pay attention to the analysis of dossiers on electronic data before developing a plan," the Director General requested.

Regarding building human resources, the whole sector, especially heads of units, continues to strengthen management and political and ideological education for customs officers.
