Wheat import: Govt mulls increasing regulatory duty by 20% – 12:30 PM – August 20, 2016

The federal government is considering enhancing the regulatory duty on the import of wheat and flour by another 20% to avoid inflow of the commodity and to protect local farmers.

“The regulatory duty has already been increased on wheat import from 25% to 40% earlier this year and now it has been decided to further push it to 60% so that local traders cannot import cheap wheat from different countries, particularly Kazakhstan, at a low price,” said a senior officer in the Federal Secretariat.

“Despite a huge subsidy on wheat export, there is no encouraging signal from any country to import Pakistan’s commodity due to lower prices in the international market,” the officer said.

“We therefore have decided to jack up the regulatory duty once again by 20% to further protect our product,” added the officer.

In this regard, the Ministry of National Food Security and Research will soon present a summary to the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet for approval.

Under the World Trade Organization (WTO) regime, a country cannot ban the import of any commodity and the regulatory duty is the only option to protect a local product.
