On 31 August 2017, the representatives of Hai Phong Customs Department, headed by Deputy Director Nguyen Kien Giang directly worked with Mr. Dao Huu Huyen-the President of Duc Giang Chemicals and Detergent Powder Joint Stock Company and representatives of Company’s relevant divisions.
According to the Company, at the conference themed “Industrial Revolution 4.0- Trends and Impacts on Vietnam’s Exports” held by Import-Export Department and Vietnam Economic Newspaper in collaboration with Private Economic Forum on 18 August 2017 in Ha Noi, due to limited time, Mr. Dao Huu Huyen made a mistake in his statement about an unregulated expense of 5 million VND/container (without bill) paid by the company when implementing import and export procedures.
Mr. Huyen said that the Company and its subsidiaries and joint ventures and associated companies paid 5 million VND to implement procedures for exported goods at Dinh Vu Port with each shipment on a ship (export) with a capacity from 8,000 tons to 10,000 tons (Meanwhile Dinh Vu Port Customs Branch only implements procedures for imported goods of this Company-Reporter said).
The representative of the company added that in the working session with Hai Phong Customs Department, the 2 parties frankly discussed in the spirit of learning. The representative of Hai Phong Customs Department consulted and explained clearly for the Company about problems related to Customs procedures, regulations and information. Hai Phong Customs was committed to further serve business community based on the spirit of learning of Customs officers, reform and modernize Customs procedures.
As reported by Customs Newspaper, after reflection of Mr. Huyen at the conference on 18 August, the leader of Hai Phong Customs Department actively contacted with president of the company for further information and requested Dinh Vu Port Customs Branch to review the process of implementing Customs procedures for import and export of the company within 1 year.
According to the statistic of the Customs Branch, over the past year (from 1 August 2016 to 29 August 20107), the company implemented Customs procedures for 20 declarations at the Branch and mainly for bulk cargo. Specifically, 5 declarations for container goods (with 53 containers), 15 declarations for bulk cargo with a total weight of 75, 3003.58 tons. For imported goods, 15 import declarations of sulphuric acid, 4 import declarations of Linear Alkylbenzene and 1 import declaration of blow molding machine.
The Dinh Vu Port Customs Branch does not implement Customs procedures for exported goods and confirms that the company’s exported goods are transported through the Customs supervision area.
On the other hand, among 20 import declarations of the company implemented at the Branch in the past year, there is 1 Green channel declaration (immediately cleared) and 19 Yellow channel declarations (must be examined dossier in detailed) and no declarations which must be changed the channel.

According to Hai Phong Customs Department, information about “after the Company’s employee prosecute to pay the unregulated expense for Customs officer (Dinh Vu Customs Branch) from 10 million VND per container, currently only 5 million VND per container. Each ton of exported goods in Hai Phong plus US$ 3 of other expenses and US$ 5 per ton of highway fee. Hence, each ton of goods must pay more US $ 8”. Therefore, a reflection of Mr. Huyen on unregulated expenses for exported goods of the company at Dinh Vu Port Customs Branch is incorrect.
