Ngoc Thuy 17:11, 2020/12/24
Local authorities will maintain inspection works at key areas, including Noi Bai International Airport, Yen Vien train station, ports, wholesale markets and shopping malls.

Hanoi’s Steering Committee for Combating Smuggling, Commercial Fraud and Counterfeit Goods, known as Steering Committee 389, has announced its plan to intensify efforts to combat smuggling and trade frauds before, during and after the 2021 Lunar New Year holiday.

 Local authorities would maintain inspection works at key areas.

Under the plan, the city’s Steering Committee 389 will enhance inspection works at key areas, including Noi Bai International Airport, Yen Vien train station, ports, wholesale markets, and shopping malls.

The committee is set to mobilize personnel and resources to set up checkpoints at roads, railways, airports to prevent movement of smuggled, fake and low-quality products into the country. This is particularly important for the control of banned items or items that could pose risks to public security and order during the festive period, such as drugs, weapons, firecrackers, cigarettes, petroleum products, food, wine, electronic products, cosmetics, and luxury clothes.

According to the plan, anti-smuggling and combat trade frauds efforts will focus on goods and products required for the Covid-19 fight, particularly face masks, hand sanitizers and medical protective gear.

In the coming time, the committee will promote public awareness to aid the authorities’ efforts against smuggling, trade frauds and sales of fake products.

The committee urged local agencies to step up responsibilities and take an active role in the joint-efforts during the festive periods, especially in the upcoming 13th national Party Congress.
