As a result, the unit has organized many dialogues and meetings, exchanged and supported thousands businesses.

Specifically, in Mong Cai City, Quang Ninh organized meetings with nearly 100 businesses and held a conference to promote import and export activities through pairs of border gates Mong Cai (Vietnam) - Dong Hung (China), which attracted 150 businesses. The unit also signed a Memorandum of Understanding on coordination with the Association of Mong Cai City Enterprises and signed a cooperation agreement with Dong Bac Hai Phong Minerals Joint Stock Company in developing a Customs-Business partnership.

In addition to traditional solutions, Quang Ninh Customs has actively developed and applied Customs and Enterprise Relationship Management Software (CERM) to serve and support businesses in carrying out import and export procedures through the province and allow businesses to directly participate in assessing and commenting to the customs agency. Moreover, through its fanpage, the unit has provided many useful information and products, which have been welcomed and appreciated by the business community.
