The Vietnam General Department of Customs and its subsidiaries will be examined in terms of smuggling prevention , the enforcement of tax laws on imports and exports, asset procurement and investment activities, while the Mekong Delta Housing Development Bank will be inspected in the fields of lending, investment and asset procurement.

Inspections at the Ministries of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs, Education and Training, Culture – Sports and Tourism, and Public Health will review their allocation and management of financial sources for major projects in their respective fields.
