chintan shah : I was still unable to get proper information on situation where actually I am currently. I have been importing wood products from Vietnam regularly, but in 2013 my supplier kept my advance payment and did not send goods either. I have been chasing him since then including one personal visit to him in Vietnam. But all my efforts are not good enough to get myself out from the situation. I tried to get guidance of other big importers who deals in the country but they too are less interested. I might want some productive guidance , can help me out of this situation.

J J BHATT: dear sir, during my recent visit to Vietnam, i made a purchased a wooden Buddha idol, for my personal use. As it required packing, due to its size I could not bring with me.
