Finance Minister Vuong Dinh Hue worked with Director-General of the Japanese General Department of Customs Atsuo Shibota on February 14 th in Hanoi to discuss measures to boost the cooperation between the two countries’ customs sectors.
The Vietnamese Finance Minister recommended the establishment of an electronic customs system, based on a Japanese modern automated system, called Nippon Automated Customs Clearance System (NACCS).
The Governments of Vietnam and Japan have agreed to deploy a project to build electronic customs and implement a mechanism of national one-way customs, in order to modernise Vietnamese customs using a non-refundable aid from the Japanese government.
Japan will divide the project into four packages, including customs clearance software and hardware of a data center with a budget for designing, consultancy and monitoring the project at a total cost of US$34million, JICA technical support package, long-term professional package and mutual support of Japan customs for Vietnam customs.
Finance Minister Vuong Dinh Hue said that the project would boost import and export turnover between Vietnam and other countries, especially Japan, and create more opportunities for foreign enterprises and investors, including Japan.
