Customs branches under HCM City Customs Department have diversified support methods and facilitated trade in line with the characteristics of each branch.

According to the Manager of 4th Zone Sai Gon Seaport Customs Branch Tong Le Dan, the dialogue with the operators is one of the action programs under Directive 01 dated February 3, 2023, of the Director of HCM City Customs Department on strengthening solutions to fulfil tasks in 2023.

Therefore, the leader says there need cooperation and well compliance with the law by enterprises and related parties, including warehouse and port operators".

The Branch's Manager, Le Tuan Binh, said that from the early year, the branch had made plans to work with the leader of each company that has a large volume of imports and exports to grasp their status and plans to provide solutions to support and guide them. Therefore, Customs has also assessed the revenues.

However, amid the difficult situation in the domestic and global markets, the decrease in import and export activities in the first months of the year impacted the department's revenue; the department issued Directive 01/CT-HQTPHCM on accelerating solutions to fulfil tasks in 2023.

The department has pushed up digital transformation, IT application in customs operation, administrative reform and customs clearance reform, and supported and resolved problems of people and enterprises, creating a favourable and transparent trade environment.
