FROM DECEMBER 1, THE MINISTRY OF INDUSTRY AND TRADE IS THE STATE MANAGEMENT AGENCY FOR THE LOGISTICS INDUSTRY

Since December 1, 2022, the Ministry of Industry and Trade has been assigned by the Government to be the state management agency for the operation of Vietnam's logistics service industry. This task of the Ministry of Industry and Trade is based on Task No. 53 on "consolidating the entire state management apparatus in logistics" of Decision No. 221/QD-TTg dated February 22, 2021 of the Prime Minister.

This is the result after many times the Vietnam Logistics Business Association (VLA) persistently suggested that there should be a unified state management agency for the logistics industry. The most recent report was at the Vietnam Logistics Forum on November 26, 2022; And before that, on August 5, 2022, at the 8th Session of the National Steering Committee on ASEAN Single Window, National Single Window and Trade Facilitation (Committee 1899), Standing Vice Chairman Dao Trong Khoa reported directly to Standing Deputy Prime Minister Pham Binh Minh on behalf of the VLA Association.

Decree No. 96/2022/ND-CP (Decree 96) was issued on November 29, 2022, defining the functions, duties, powers and organizational structure of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. According to points a and b, Clause 16, Article 2 of this Decree, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is assigned the task of "assume the prime responsibility for, and coordinate with ministries, branches and localities in, formulating and organizing the implementation of policies and laws on logistics services. Coordinating and supporting ministries, branches, localities and associations to develop services logistics”. The Decree takes effect from December 1, 2022 - just after 02 days from the date of signing and is the first day of the last month in an exciting year for the logistics service industry and Vietnam's economy.

Along with the efforts of the VLA Association, over the past time, the Agency of Foreign Trade - the Ministry of Industry and Trade has always accompanied, listened to, and appreciated the opinions of the VLA Association in removing difficulties and obstacles of the operation of the logistics service industry in Vietnam. More than anyone else, the Agency of Foreign Trade - Ministry of Industry and Trade understands the urgency and importance of having a state agency in charge of management to promptly grasp and plan development strategies in line with the practice of promoting industry development.

With Decree 96, VLA believes that Vietnam's logistics service industry will have new developments through the management and guidance of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. VLA also hopes that the annual meeting of the FIATA World Congress 2025 held in Vietnam, which VLA has successfully made efforts after many years of participating in, won the right to host will contribute to promoting import and export of goods, logistics services in particular and Vietnam's trade, tourism, services and economy in general. Also with Decree 96, an inter-regional logistics association will soon be established with the help of the recent VLA as it has supported the formation of a local association recently.
