Vietnam.net on 15th October reported that the Prime Minister has given instructions to fight against origin fraud and illegal transshipment to protect brands and the prestige of Vietnamese goods – and in the face of unpredictable development of the US-China trade war, and producers transferring production to, or via, Vietnam as a result. It is said that customs agencies have conducted deep investigations of origin fraud in specific industries such as steel, wood, seafood, bicycles and solar panels.
