HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Industry and Trade has moved to put more public administrative services online to achieve a more simplified and transparent administration.
As of the end of January, ministry’s Foreign Trade Agency had 47 of its public services available online at level 3 (forms that can be downloaded and processed online) and level 4 (forms and payments that can be processed online) on the website online.moit.gov.vn.
More than 1.48 million import-export dossiers were handled online, including issuance of 1.43 million certificates of origin (C/O).
Many businesses said they were satisfied with the online issuance of C/Os as it promotes transparency and minimises customs clearance time and expenses spent by businesses, improving their competitiveness.
In addition, the ministry has 11 administrative procedures connected to the National Single Window (NSW), including the granting of import licenses for ozone-layer depleting pre-substances, import and export licences for explosive pre-substances, automated import licenses for motorcycles, non-commercial tobacco imports, and the C/O form D.
By 2020, all of the import-export administrative procedures will be handled through the system.
To date, it has settled more than 164,000 electronic dossiers via the NSW.
The ministry will work with the Ministry of Finance to connect its administrative procedures to the ASEAN Single Window to ease customs process and reduce the tax burden. — VNS
