There was a site that was not connected because it did not have the software meeting the requirements for connection.
For the bonded warehouses, Mr. Phong added that the Department supported and urged enterprises to implement relevant work to ensure the connection before 30th November 2018, in accordance with the plan of General Department of Vietnam Customs.
