The Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyen Tan Dung, hopes to light up his country’s anti-smuggling budget with a scheme to re-export seized tobacco, according to a Vietnam News Agency story.

Under the PM approved Decision No. 1112, good quality tobacco seized from smugglers will be re-exported as part of an experiment running from now until the end of 2013.

Money earned from the pilot scheme will be used for future anti-smuggling activities.

According to the terms of the decision, the re-exports must not go to countries borderingViet   Nam.

The Ministry of Industry and Trade will be responsible for appointing suitable enterprises to perform the re-exports, as well as regulating them.
