The Vietnam Customs has instructed its agencies to work overtime in weekday, at the weekend and in holidays to clear customs procedures for foreign companies hit by anti-China protests.

The instruction said that customs departments in provinces and cities should arrange a division to directly receive and solve problems for businesses and provide them with specific contacts. 
They should also send officials to work with the companies and authorized agencies to assess losses of businesses. This aims to calculate the exempt or reduced tariff on damaged commodities and to extend tax payment deadlines for them.
Customs officials must facilitate customs clearance for export and import consignments of businesses including those that owe taxes so that they can resume production and meet their orders.
