However, to implement undertakings of the Party and the Government, by 2021, the Customs sector will still implement the 10% payroll streamlining. In addition to the successes achieved in the reform of administrative procedures, the modernization of customs operations (national single window, electronic customs procedures VNACCS/VCIS) to better serve people and businesses, means outward modernization reform, the General Department of Customs continues to promote reform activities within the customs authorities; in which more attention is paid to the construction of customs forces towards the goal: Professional, intensive, integrity, mastering modern technology with a key task of building and deploying successful model of state management according to capacity of the whole Customs sector.

In 2018, the General Department of Customs successfully organized a competency assessment exam for nearly 3,000 candidates at 6 departments at the General Department and 7 Customs Departments that have the number of civil servants and the workload at the top of the industry.

The success of the first capacity assessment of the General Department of Customs in 2018 according to sectoral standards is only the first step to create a premise to carry out the next activities in the capacity assessment series.
