Import tariff
Description
Raised import duties levied on husked and semi/wholly milled rice (whether or not parboiled) to 90%, effective 24 April 2015. Previously applicable rates varied from 15% to 50% in the case of husked rice and from 15 to 90% for semi/wholly milled rice. The decision also eliminates six tariff lines, including those for jasmine or basmati rice and for husked or milled imports in packages of up to 5 kilos for retail sale.
