STEPPING UP THE FIGHT AGAINST SMUGGLING, TRADE FRAUDS AND COUNTERFEITS IN NEW PERIOD OF TIME

GOVERNMENT

Pursuant to the Law on Government organization dated December 25, 2001;

Pursuant to the Government’s Decree No. 08/2012/NĐ-CP dated February 16, 2012 promulgating governmental working regulations

Based on suggestions from the Governmental members and conclusions given by the Prime Minister in regular governmental meeting session in May 2015;

RESOLUTION:

I. ASSESSMENT OF SITUATIONS

In recent years, the fight against smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits have drawn attention and interest of the Communist Party and State. Ministries, sectors, localities and functional forces and people have actively been involved in the fight and have achieved important results, making significant contribution to stabilizing and speeding up production, trading, increasing state budget revenue, ensuring security, order and protection of interests of people. Particularly as the Prime Minister promulgates the Decision No. 389/QĐ-TTg dated March 19, 2014 establishing the national steering committee for the fight against smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits (National Steering Committee 389), this task has shown significant changes and initially achieved positive results. Awareness of authorities and branches have been enhanced, roles and responsibilities of functional forces heighten.

However, the fight against smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits has not effected fundamental changes. Smuggling, illegal transport of goods across the border, trade frauds and counterfeits remain complicated with sophisticated trickeries associated with corruption causing loss to state budget and natural resources, imposing negative impacts on environment of investment, trading and international integration; counterfeits, poor quality products, goods of unclear origin in a variety of categories have been displayed for sale, especially imported tobacco and items imposing direct effects on human health have not yet been driven back.

Situations mentioned above result from a lot of reasons, particularly some ministries, departments, local authorities and functional forces have not really paid adequate attention to participating, directing and mobilizing the synergy of society into the fight against smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits. This partly comes from ignorance and relaxation of management and fighting by some corrupt officials, public servants who take advantages of positions and powers to protect and join hands with smugglers, trade frauds and counterfeit traders. Legal system and policies show much insufficiency and weakness with supplements and amendments being sluggishly made. Coordination proves ineffective and lacks comprehension. Task of information communication shows a lot of constraints. Investigation and handling of smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits are not objective and strict enough. Production of goods is yet to meet demand. Part of population in border area, remote area or areas facing economic difficulties is involved in smuggling and illegal transport of goods across the border.

II. SOME MAIN DUTIES AND SOLUTIONS

In order to bring into play the synergy of society and effect fundamental changes in the fight against smuggling, trade frauds and counterfeits in the coming time, the Ministries, sectors and localities and functional forces need to be clearly aware of harmful effects of smuggling, trade frauds, production and circulation of counterfeits on socio-economic development, security and order, safety of communities and health of people, put forward appropriate measures and organize the implementation resolutely and effectively.
