Accordingly, the department proactively grasps information of enterprises, publicizes and supports the business community to understand and comply with regulations related to import and export activities, helping them gradually improve the compliance level, reduce the rate of declarations subject to dossier inspection and physical inspection of goods.

Activities deployed by Bac Ninh Customs Department not only concretize the goals of reform and modernization of the Customs industry but also improve the provincial competitiveness index of Bac Ninh Bac Giang and Thai Nguyen provinces.
