The extended review and handling of large debtors will also be focused to make a list of tax debtors to urge tax debt and collect new debts in order to avoid prolonged debts, causing difficulties for debt collection.

The taxation sector will continue to work closely with the party committees, local authorities, relevant ministries and agencies such as: the police, the State Bank, the courts, market surveillance, investment and planning agencies and national defense agencies in collecting outstanding debts especially debts related to land or charges for granting mineral mining rights.
