HONG KONG (XIANGGANG), February 27 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s federal customs service plans to step up contacts with Hong Kong and will send its envoy to China’s Special Administrative Region, a member of the service’s delegation told Itar-Tass on Monday.
After all technicalities are finalized, the federal customs service will send its representative already this year. He will work at Russia’s consulate general.
The delegation led by the service’s chief, Andrei Belyaninov arrived in Hong Kong on a three-day visit on Monday. These are first contacts between customs services of Russia and Hong Kong.
“This is a study visit, we came to exchange experience,” Belyaninov told Itar-Tass. “On Tuesday we will meet with Hong Kong’s customs commissioner and will visit customs checkpoints. After the meeting we plan to sign a protocol.”
The delegation will study Hong Kong’s customs control system, monitor equipment at a sea container terminal and land checkpoints on the border with China’s mainland.
“At the border checkpoint they process dozens of thousands of motor vehicles per day. Such a speed is impossible for us,” a member of the delegation said.
