BINH DUONG (VNS) — One hundred Japanese firms operating in the southern province of Binh Duong were told about tax policies and export-import procedures at a meeting on Wednesday.
At the event, Binh Duong customs officials clarified the procedures of the Japan-funded Viet Nam Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System and the Viet Nam Customs Information System (VNACCS/VCIS).
Most of the Japanese businesspeople raised concerns regarding the use of on-site export invoices and the inspection of the quality of imports.
Regarding the on-the-spot export-import inspections, Nguyen Hong Hanh, deputy head of the Binh Duong provincial customs department, said businesses have to submit invoice copies only to the customs office when required.
They are permitted to bring special goods such as vaccines, medicines, health equipment, cattle feed and fertilisers to their headquarters for the quality monitoring under the supervision of customs officials, he said.
Binh Duong has attracted more than 17,400 projects, of which 2,250 are foreign direct investment ones, worth a total of nearly US$20 billion. With 204 projects valued at over $4.3 billion, Japan has become the largest investor in the locality. — VNS
