Description
Following an agreement with sector representatives, announced plans to lower import duties on rice. The move is geared at arresting the large unofficial rice inflows through land borders triggered by the imposition of a 10 percent duty and a 100 percent levy on imported husked and milled/semi-milled rice in 2013.
