Therefore, customs clearance for these consignments takes only 2-3 minutes when the cargo arrives border gates.

Motivated by the great effort of local governments and management agencies, the import and export activities across border gates are maintained stably.

In addition, the competent authorities have implemented solutions to ensure smooth import and export activities, Vuong said.
