Egypt imposes extra tariffs on sugar

This article was originally published in The Public Ledger

EGYPT has notified the WTO that it has imposed additional tariffs on raw and white sugar for 200 days from December 2, to protect domestic producers from a surge in imports. Egypt imposed a provisional safeguard measure of 17% of the cif value of raw sugar imports, or a minimum of E£591 ($96.60) per tonne, and 20% on white sugar, or a minimum of E£713 per tonne. Developing countries are exempt from the additional tariffs as long as their shipments do not exceed 3% of Egypt’s total imports each or 9% together.
