“Granting licenses online will help companies from abroad cut down on the amount of paperwork involved in obtaining permission for opening representative offices in Ha Noi. It will also improve our management of this area of administration," said Nguyen Manh Hoang, Director of the Ha Noi Trading Department.
"Foreign firms can register at www.hanoitrade.com.vn or www.stmhn-vpdd.gov.vn. We will hold a training course this month to provide guidelines on using the new system”.
Once the new service is operational, foreign companies will have only to complete a registration form online and submit original copies of relevant documents to the Ha Noi Trading Department to receive their licenses.
Thanks to the new procedure, license-processing time will be reduced from 15 days to 5 or 7.
