China will select some customs houses to conduct paperless customs clearance on a pilot basis in 2012, Yu Guangzhou, the director of China's General Administration of Customs (GAC), said at the National Conference of Customs Directors recently.

Yu said that paperless customs clearance does not require paper because the information can be stored and conveyed through computers and other electronic media.

In 2012, the GAC will improve data collection and analysis, strengthen monitoring of imports and exports, vigorously promote service reforms, expand the reform of classified customs clearance to the entire country, and launch the pilot reform of paperless customs clearance, said Yu.
