Shanghai Customs has been leading the charge on Customs reforms and will introduce its latest reform project to AmCham Shanghai members on Tuesday, July 26th, 2:30-4:00pm at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Room.
On June 1, Shanghai Customs launched a new pilot project which will simplify and unify Customs clearance management procedures nationally. The project is called Quanguo tongguan Yitihua (Nationwide Integration of Clearance) and will have enormous benefits for importers and exporters. The goal of the reform is to standardize Customs clearance procedures nationally to allow companies to use one Custom office to clear all shipments, regardless of their destination. The program will also simplify tax collection procedures. If there are specific topics or questions that you want the Customs to cover and answer on this topic, please email Elyssa Gao upon RSVP.
This event is organized by the Chamber's Trade Facilitation Taskforce (TFT) a group that engages Shanghai Customs and CIQ regularly on key issues related to import and export business. For more information on how to join the TFT please contact Elyssa.firstname.lastname@example.org
