VietNamNet Bridge – As thousands of cars with diplomatic licence plates are being used improperly, causing tax losses to the state budget, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has asked relevant bodies to immediately review the management, distribution of and handle violations related to this type of cars.
Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has instructed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Public Security to immediately check the management, distribution of and handle violations related to using cars bearing diplomatic number plates in Vietnam.
He also requested these ministries to review their responsibilities, to report and recommend to the government the management mode, assignment of responsibilities of government bodies in the control of cars bearing foreign diplomatic number plates, to suit the requirements of the new situation.
Before October 25, the Ministry of Finance has to report to the government the development and promulgation of the regulations on temporary import, re-export, destruction and transfer of cars and motorbikes that enjoy diplomatic incentives and immunity.
Earlier, the media reported that over 4,000 foreign cars were imported into Vietnam from 1998 to the end of August 2009. In particular, thousands of cars are "floating" in the market, without fulfilling the transfer procedures or having been transferred but not pay taxes.
