From 18 to 21 April 2017, short-term experts (IT Assistance Mission) from Japan visited Hanoi. At the headquarters of General Department of Vietnam Customs (GDVC), following the consultation during the previous mission in March, they had a series of meetings with GDVC officials concerned, including those from Customs IT and Statistics Department and other related departments, in order to discuss future action plans and schedule for the hardware renewal and improvement of VNACCS. In addition, since GDVC presented various issues that would need assistances from Japan at the fifth Joint Coordinating Committee (JCC) in March, staff from JICA Vietnam Office joined a part of the meetings and explained the scope of the possible future assistance from JICA.
This is the eighth mission of short-term experts for achieving Output 1 of the Project, "Identification of a direction of future course of action for enhancing the utilization of VNACCS". The continuous consideration will be conducted, on the basis of the result of the discussion during the mission.
