The signatories of the document were Vietnamese Deputy Finance Minister Vu Thi Mai and US Deputy Chief of Mission in Vietnam Caryn McClelland.
The agreement offers a legal basis for the official relationship and the cooperation, technical assistance and information exchange mechanism between the two customs agencies, aiming to prevent, detect and handle violations of customs laws.
Particularly, in the context of the growing Vietnam-US trade relations, assistance activities based on the agreement will bring substantive contributions to trade facilitation and contribute to the fight against trade frauds and the illegal transportation of goods across each other’s territory to evade trade remedies.
The deal took effect from May 20, 2020./.
