Import tariff
Description
Announced amendments to import tariffs levied on rice, effective from 1 July 2018. Specifically, out-of-quota duties on non-long grain paddy, husked and semi/wholly milled rice imported from member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) were raised from 5 percent to 50 percent. Additionally, changes to the product classification system would have relocated long grain glutinous rice from non-Indica tariff lines to long grain lines, alongside Indica imports.
