China News Service, Beijing, May 19 (Reporter Xia Bin) Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 epidemic last year, the “army” of China’s customs has been fighting on the particular “battlefield” of the front line of the country. On the 19th, the Propaganda Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China held a meeting with Chinese and foreign reporters on “Being a Guardian of the Country to Reassure the Central Government Satisfy the People” in Beijing. Four frontline representatives from the customs shared their information on foreign defense imports and assisted recovery under the epidemic. Personal experience.

“During the fight against the epidemic, what impressed me most was that my team and I completed the construction of the country’s first port epidemic prevention zone in just 72 hours.” Gao Yanjun, deputy director of the customs inspection department of the Capital Airport under Beijing Customs, recalled Said that at the beginning of March last year, Beijing decided to designate the T3D terminal into a particular area to concentrate on high-risk incoming flights, to prevent import risks effectively.

After receiving the task, Gao Yanjun and the eight young comrades in Guanli took the initiative to invite them to form a commando team. They were stationed in T3D and worked endlessly for 72 hours. The T3D airline, which had no customs-related supervision facilities, and no passenger clearance procedures, was stationed in T3D. The station building completed the renovation of more than 4,000 square meters of space within the specified time and realized the quarantine and closed-loop management of the particular area for entry personnel. The establishment of this area has contributed to the capital’s epidemic work and has also become a benchmark for the construction of epidemic prevention and control areas at major ports.

Zhang Hong, head of the Shanghai Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone under Shanghai Customs, talked about the speedy customs clearance of a batch of ECMO equipment. “When we learned that the Waigaoqiao Free Trade Zone is about to enter a batch of ECMOs, which will be used among emergency patients in major hospitals, we immediately activated relevant prediction plans, and various departments cooperated to ensure that this batch of life-saving machines was the fastest Clear the game at speed.”

On March 5 last year, the company officially declared the Gaoqiao Free Trade Zone. Zhang Hong and his colleagues completed the verification of the electronic data for the first time. At 2 pm, the customs officer was waiting to inspect the goods at the inspection site. All customs clearance procedures were completed, and ECMO “zero waiting” left the zone and rushed to the front line of the anti-epidemic.

Ma Yanhui, deputy director of the Khunjerab Customs Office under Urumqi Customs, said that in March last year, it was the mid-winter season on the Pamirs of Khunjerab Customs. The anti-epidemic vanguard of Khunjerab Customs was at an altitude of 5,100 meters. The country’s front line has been fighting for 6 hours in a row, and none of the colleagues left their posts in the weather of minus 30 degrees. The frostbite of their hands and feet was exchanged for the successful inspection and release of the first batch of medical supplies aided by China to Pakistan.

Xia Ji, Section Chief of the Second Section of Qingbaijiang Customs Supervision, a subsidiary of Chengdu Customs, mentioned that international shipping and air transportation had significantly been affected after the outbreak last year. Many foreign trade companies have set their sights on the China-Europe Express. “The Qingbaijiang Customs where I work has formed a party member commando team to guarantee the operation of trains around the clock and support enterprises to respond to the impact of the epidemic. Party members and comrades of the branch and I are on duty 24 hours a day in the green channel’. While learning about the China Development Bank plan from the train company, while instructing companies to handle various businesses online without meeting each other, we will work with Alashankou, Horgos, and other train stations to ensure smooth customs clearance.”

Xia Ji said that during that time, we often lived and lived at the port, with only one goal, which was to minimize the impact of the epidemic on the operation of trains. After many efforts, during the epidemic, the Chengdu China-Europe Express Train maintained a regular operation. Various indicators increased against the trend, which strongly supported the resumption of work and production in China. (Finish)
