When the virus is spreading across the world, Huai'an Customs prudently and efficiently went through the application procedures of new and converted enterprises of epidemic prevention materials production through the "enterprise problem clearing" system, telephone consultation, remote video guidance, online registration and approval systems like "No Meeting" and "Cloud Handling".
