In April, revenue collection of Long An Customs Department reached VND 285 billion, up 20% compared to the average of three months in the first quarter (VND 230 billion), the revenue collection in May is forecast to reach about VND 300 billion, up 5% from April.
The revenue collection of some branches of Long An Customs Department also achieved remarkable results. As of May 18, the revenue collection of Ben Tre Customs Branch exceeded 127.7% of the target assigned by the General Department of Vietnam Customs (reaching more than VND 68 billion); the revenue collection of My Tho Customs Branch exceeded VND 83 billion, increasing over 38%; revenue collection of Duc Hoa Customs Branch reached more than VND 396 billion, up 23%, compared to the same period in 2019.
Although there are positive changes, according to Long An Customs Department, revenue collection of the unit still faces many difficulties. As of May 18, revenue collection of the Long An Customs Department only reached more than VND 1,140 billion, 28.5% of the target assigned by the Ministry of Finance, down nearly 23% compared to the same period in 2019. In particular, revenue collection of Ben Luc Customs Branch - the unit with the largest revenue of Long An Customs Department, still decreased by 40% compared to the same period, only hitting 25% compared to the target.
The leader of Long An Customs Department said with the current results of revenue collection, in the last seven months of the year, on average, Long An Customs Department had to collect about VND 387 billion each month to reach the target of VND 4,000 billion in 2020. This was a very difficult task because import and export activities of enterprises in the area were still suffering from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has caused a reduction of orders in export markets. Along with that, domestic consumption of some goods was also not satisfactory. It was forecast that revenue collection of the unit in 2020 would only reach 70% to 80% of the target.
