“QuanYuTong” Brings Steady Growth to Sichuan’s Foreign Trade
[Ni Zao]: The "three" represents the three systems created as part of the "QuanYuTong" system: the Chengdu Regional Customs Logistics Supervision System, the Centralized Supervision Command System, and the Enterprise Customs Logistics Services System. 06/25/2014 10:24:10
[Ni Zao]: The "four" represents the four reforms, a reform of the supervision model (mainly optimizing the traditional model and providing more methods for enterprises to choose from), optimizing the overall customs process (mainly cooperation between customs and inspection departments and an optimization of the port processes), a reform of the supporting assessment mechanism, and a reform of human resource allocation. 06/25/2014 10:24:39
[Ni Zao]: You can see more clearly what I mean from this diagram:
[Wang Hua]: That makes the whole system much clearer. What was the idea behind this systematic undertaking? 06/25/2014 10:25:59
[Ni Zao]: As you know, Sichuan is an inland province which puts it at a disadvantage with no border to neighboring countries or seas. But with the national push for the development of western regions and reorganization of the manufacturing trade industry chain, Sichuan has seen rapid development in its export-oriented economy and more and more foreign and manufacturing companies are setting up in the province. 06/25/2014 10:27:37
[Ni Zao]: The growth of Sichuan's import and export industry over the past few years has been much faster than that for the whole country. In 2013, Sichuan's import and export value exceeded 60 billion dollars, ranking it second in western China. 06/25/2014 10:27:44
[Ni Zao]: As this was happening, we began to look at certain issues. As trade was developing, was our management developing with it? Was there anything that was restricting development? What could Chengdu Customs do to help? And so in 2012, Chengdu Customs District established a work team to look into how we could reform the customs process. 06/25/2014 10:27:59
[Wang Hua]: Right. Such a huge project requires preparation. How did you go about achieving this reform? 06/25/2014 10:28:51
[Ni Zao]: We divided the plan up into three stages staring off small and working up to achieve the "QuanYuTong". 06/25/2014 10:29:08
