-  Review and complete policies and laws, upgrade information technology systems in the direction of digitalizing documents of customs documents toward non-paper customs procedures for imports and exports and entry and exit transport vehicles to gradually terminate the requirements for customs declarants to submit paper documents regarding customs documents during customs procedures.

- Review and complete the system of legislative documents concerning the issuance of licenses and specialized inspections of imports and exports to promptly detect inadequacies and difficulties and request managing ministries and competent authorities to issue amendments; accelerate the reform and application of information technology and data sharing with customs authorities for goods customs clearance.

 - Ensure adequate equipment for customs modernization and customs inspection, supervision, and control at border checkpoints and seaports and limit contact between people, enterprises, and customs authorities to ensure strictness and compliance with the law.
