Dong Nai (VNA) – The People’s Committee
of the southern province of Dong Nai and the provincial Customs Department held
a dialogue with over 100 Japanese businesses to help them extricate

Answering the businesses’ queries about classifying customs
declarations, Le Van Danh, head of the Customs Department, said the
classification of declarations is made automatically on the customs sector’s
system and it depends on such factors as firms’ compliance and goods’ risk

Japanese enterprises also proposed simplifying customs procedures while
importing batches of the same type and origin at different moments from Japan
to Vietnam.

Speaking at the event, Vice Chairman of the
Committee Tran Van Dinh said Japanese are among foreign businesses pioneering in
economic development in Dong Nai.

Japanese firms have always strictly obeyed
Vietnam’s legal regulations and implemented effectively policies on environment,
tax and customs, and particularly those for workers, he said.

In the coming time, the province will
continuously accompany businesses and provide them with maximum support, he
said, adding it also hopes to receive feedback from Japanese businesses for
timely solutions.

Chairman of the Japanese Business Association in
Ho Chi Minh City Kadowaki Keiichi said more than 100 Japanese enterprises are operating
in Dong Nai.

Over the past time, the relations between local
authorities and Japanese businesses have been tightened via cooperation
agreements, he said.

Japanese businesses are running over 250
projects worth 3.9 billion USD in the fields of electronics, digital equipment,
electric appliances, and support industry.

In the first five months of 2017, they earned 1.8
billion USD from exports, making up 15 percent of the province’s total trade.-VNA
