Customs duty on dumpers’ import cut, Pakistan
Published: 18 January 2007

In order to provide efficient means of transport to the cement industry, the CBR has reduced the import duty on off-highway dump trucks from 30% to 5% and cement semi-trailers from 30% to 5%. The local industry is producing 50 million ton cement now against its earlier production of just 18 million ton and would be facilitated by this decision. Earlier the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet had approved this proposal to lower the rate of duty on import of said vehicles to facilitate the cement industry.
