According to the resolution, by the end of 2017, most public services provided for citizens and businesses will be launched at level 3 or level 4 which facilitates online fee payment and dossier submission and notification of dossier processing results.
Regulations on certification of technical regulation conformity and quality management that are no longer compliant with current laws should be revised toward abrogating unnecessary administrative procedures, shortening the time for completing the administrative procedures for imports and exports, and increasing post-customs clearance inspection.
In addition, regulations on import of used machinery, equipment and technology lines will be revised with new criteria for permitting the import of such items based on their age (counted from the date of manufacture to the date of import) and fields they will be used. The age limit of 10 years will no longer be applicable.-(VLLF)
