Thirteen ministries seek to remove impediments to business

The Saigon Times Daily

HCMC – The Ministry of Science and Technology and 12 other ministries and ministerial agencies began a three-day seminar in Vinh Phuc Province on October 11 to find ways to do away with hindrances to business.

At the seminar they will do reviews so as to cut half the customs procedures for goods subject to pre-clearance inspections, the Government news website reports.

The Government issued Resolution 75/NQ-CP in early August ordering the Ministry of Science and Technology to coordinate with other ministries and agencies to review and leave out at least 50% of the goods from Group 2 prior to June next year. All items placed in this group must be inspected before customs clearance.

In addition, the Government assigned the Ministries of Industry-Trade, Transport, Agriculture-Rural Development, and Health to cut the proportion of imported goods subject to pre-customs-clearance inspections from the current 30-35% to 15%.

Group 2 goods are those related to safety issues and consumer health. However, the current list includes products which are not likely to compromise safety.

Deputy head of the Directorate for Standards, Metrology and Quality under the Ministry of Science and Technology Nguyen Hoang Linh said the Government has asked relevant ministries and agencies to reform sector-specific inspections to make life easier for business.

He stressed the review of commodities could help prevent overlapping checks, thereby reducing customs clearance time for exporters and importers.
