Binh Duong Customs Department achieved positive results in supporting import and export activities in the first six months of 2021.

The department settled 793,194 import and export procedures filed by more than 5,700 companies. Especially, the agency targeted to collect more than VND10 trillion of budget revenue, 47% more than that in the same period of 2020, equal to more than 62% of the task assigned by the Ministry of Finance and more than 60% of the task assigned by the General Department of Customs in 2021 (VND16.7 trillion).

The Binh Duong Customs Department said that, according to statistics, more than 300 companies are heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic because their export orders were canceled or reduced by their customers; many faced difficulty in transporting inputs and outputs; and the domestic consumption market contracted. Some reported having COVID-19 infections that resulted in production and business disruptions. However, a majority of exporters and importers continued to work stably and maintain good growth. None faced such difficulties as bankruptcy and closure as happened in 2020. Many responded promptly to personnel shortages.
