"The Branch has assigned 100% officers to process procedures for enterprises. On the other hand, the Branch has also coordinated with local agencies to inspect and control smuggling and trade fraud. Motivated by positive signs of import and export activities, it is forecasted that the indicators in 2023 will increase from 30% to 50% compared with 2022.

Recently, the Branch held a dialogue conference with 70 import and export enterprises. At the conference, enterprises highly appreciated the customs reform and modernization by equipping many modern machines and equipment, especially container scanners, which helped businesses shorten customs clearance time and reduce costs.

Lao Bao Customs Department has recorded many problems and difficulties related to loading and unloading for overloaded means of transport when entering Vietnam, as well as the lack of a yard for unloading of goods.

In the future, the Branch will plan to improve service quality and collaborate with competent agencies at Lao Bao Border Gate and Den-sa-van (Laos) to remove problems and facilitate trade.

Promoting goods flow increase

To promote trade across the area, Quang Tri Customs Department continues to expedite administrative reform and resolve problems for enterprises, improve the business environment and facilitate trade to stably develop, attract investment, raise production capacity, boost the economy and create a premise to increase revenue. In addition, it strengthens the dissemination of information, policies and administrative procedures and diversifies measures to support enterprises in all processes and sectors.

Border gate Customs branches will continue to make plans and organize Customs-Business dialogue conferences, actively grasping the situation and problems of enterprises. In addition to trade facilitation, the branches will drastically take measures to control and supervise key areas and products.

Strengthen information collection and analysis to identify offences and fraudulent methods and tricks in import-export activities; make warning records; closely monitor, and supervise targeted enterprises that show the risk of taking advantage of incentive policies for smuggling and trade fraud.

The department continues implementing a plan to exploit the potential and advantages of the East-West Economic Corridor (EWEC) and the Parallel Economic Corridor with the EWEC.

Advise and propose the Provincial People's Committee solutions to raise the competitive advantage of Lao Bao and La Lay international border gates on the East-West Economic Corridor, including focusing on upgrading and speeding up the construction progress of infrastructure, roads, and bridges, especially to promote and increase the flow of goods and vehicles across the border gate, including to deal with the issues of charges at the border gate, inspection, supervision and coordination of competent forces at the border gate.
