The "Customs Clearance Coordination Group" of the SAR government will communicate with the Guangdong and Shenzhen governments, hoping to reach a consensus as soon as possible and submit it to the central government for approval, so as to implement the customs clearance plan as soon as possible.
He emphasized that the problem of the number of people should be dealt with at the first time, and the queuing and process at the time of customs clearance should be smooth. Any chaos will cause unwanted consequences, and it is necessary to fully assess the risks and make preparations.
