The committee has also proposed the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Trade to specify regulations on legal documents for gold/jewelry purchased from customers.

In addition, the city has suggested the central bank to permit credit institutions to provide loans in the Vietnamese dong for businesses making gold jewelry and fine arts.

The bank should intensify inspecting and handling gold import violations from border gates, it said.
