People asked: What kind of information do we currently collect to the destination address in the airport and in the seaports. It took seven days for the Ministry of Finance to answer: “Sorry we are just a tax collecting agency really. We are not really the Ministry of Finance. This is for the Office of Import-Export to answer.” We say, okay, so we tag that agency. So in seven days they had to answer: “We don’t have this system. We know Japan has it and Singapore has it too. It never occurred to us to build this system. Sorry.”
