[Advocacy] EuroCham received Award from Ho Chi Minh City Customs Department for its contribution in 2018

On 10 January 2019, a EuroCham Delegation led by Vice-Chairman Jean-Jacques Bouflet and including Board Member Minh Nguyen; Chairman of EuroCham Transportation and Logistics Sector Committee Juergen Weber; Chairman of EuroCham Mobility Sector Committee Laurent Genet; and Chairman of Tax Sector Committee Thomas McClelland, attended a conference held by the Ho Chi Minh City Customs Department to honor the businesses who have made a remarkable contribution to Customs in HCMC in 2018. The event was attended by Mr. Do Hoang Anh Tuan, Deputy Minister of Finance; Mr. Ngo Van Can, General Director of the General Customs Department; and Mr. Tran Vinh Tuyen, Vice Chairman of HCMC People’s Committee.
 

Speaking at the conference, Mr. Dinh Ngoc Thang, Director of the HCMC Customs Department, highlighted that thanks to the positive cooperation of the HCMC business community and business associations, the HCMC Customs Department reached 100.34% of its target for State budget collection in 2018. On this occasion, the Department of Customs recognised 200 businesses that have complied with customs regulations and contributed to the State budget with a Certificate of Merit.
  

Among other Chambers and EU agencies, EuroCham was also awarded Medal for its cooperation with the Customs Department. During 2018, EuroCham was one of the most active Chambers, acting as a bridge between the Customs Department and the business community by continuously organising training sessions and dialogues to support European businesses in their daily operations related to Customs practices.

Looking forward to 2019, Vice-Chairman of the HCMC People’s Committee, Mr. Tran Vinh Tuyen, committed that the city would continue to reform its administrative processes and to build an effective e-Government system in order to support the business community to further invest and operate in HCMC. Mr. Dinh Ngoc Thang, on behalf of the HCMC Customs Department, also committed that, in 2019, HCMC Customs will continue to promote administrative reforms, specifically to reduce export customs clearance time to 70 and 90 hours with imports. Mr. Thang also expressed the willingness of HCMC Customs Department to more closely collaborate with business associations to ensure the success of Plan 77 for 2019: “The business community and the HCMC Customs Department are reliable partners, accompanying for co-development”.
