After more than 7 months of execution, currently, 37 foreign suppliers have successfully declared and paid tax with a total amount of over VND3,170 billion.

The revenue in the first months of the year slowed down compared with previous years due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, thanks to the drastic implementation of policies to support businesses and people affected by the pandemic, the revenue has surged in recent months.
