Vietnam Trade Information Portal Launched

Posted: Friday, July 14, 2017

On July 12, 2017, Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue, Finance Minister Dinh Tien Dung, World Bank’s Acting Country Director Sebastian Eckardt, and Director General of Vietnam Customs Nguyen Van Can jointly pushed the button to launch the Vietnam Trade Information Portal: The Portal is designed as a one-stop shop to providing information on import-export regulations and procedures.

Finance Minister Dinh Tien Dung said, “With the official launch and operation of the Vietnam Trade Information Portal, the business community and other stakeholders will be provided with a useful tool and able to find sufficient and necessary information for the facilitation of import-export activities. The Ministry of Finance, as the leading agency in the implementation of the World Trade Organisation Trade Facilitation Agreements (WTO FTA), has been committed to close coordination with government agencies, private sector as well as international organisations to ensure the efficient cooperation and information sharing for the sustainability of the trade information portal and contribute to the realisation of Vietnam’s international commitments to transparency.”

The information portal is hosted by the General Department of Vietnam Customs under the Ministry of Finance, with support from the World Bank Group in Vietnam. The initiative is the latest government effort to increase access to information and to comply with the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement. The website will include existing trade regulations and procedures such as laws, administrative procedures, guidance notes, forms, licenses, permits, and applicable fees in both Vietnamese and English.
