VN’s OSS mechanism sees massive growth

As many as 180,079 documents of 12,683 businesses were processed through the national one-stop-shop (OSS) mechanism by the end of June 2017, representing year-on-year rises of 107 per cent and 70 per cent respectively, according to the General Department of Viet Nam Customs on Tuesday. In the first six months of the year, the total number of agencies joining the system to 11, administrative procedure added to the system is 39.

The department is launching an OSS aviation mechanism and a project to supervise import-export activities through the national OSS mechanism in Hai Phong City and Ha Noi, before expanding to localities accommodating major seaports and airports.

Viet Nam is ready to officially connect to the ASEAN OSS Mechanism as soon as the protocol on legal framework for the system becomes effective. Currently, nine ASEAN member countries, excluding the Philippines, have approved the protocol.
