Addressing the meeting, Deputy Minister of Finance Vu Thi Mai praised the achievements of Tay Ninh Customs Department in the four months. In particular, revenue exceeded the targets assigned by the Ministry of Finance and the General Department of Customs. This was a great effort of the unit in extremely difficult conditions of a sharp reduction in revenue, tariff cuts due to the implementation of commitments and bilateral and multilateral agreements of Vietnam with other countries.
Mai said Tay Ninh Customs Department has implemented the task of urging debt recovery well. Although debt recovery was not assigned, the unit still focused on reviewing and urging debt recovery. This was a very positive result. The prevention and fight against smuggling, trade fraud and illegal cross-border transport of goods achieved many encouraging achievements.

Accordingly, Tay Ninh Customs should improve the efficiency of the prevention and combat of smuggling and trade fraud in customs process, strengthen coordination with local authorities in the fight against smuggling, illegal cross-border transport of goods, money and drugs, said Mai.
