duties on import of light commercial vehicles reduced

It has become known that import duties for light commercial vehicles in the area of the Russian Federation have been reduced to 5%. This decision was made by the sub-commission on customs duty and non-duty regulation, foreign trade protective measures of the Government commission on economic development and integration. The Ministry of Economic Development advises that the term of the duties is one calendar year. The authority also proposed to prolong for one year the zero rate of the customs duty on electric vehicle imports. However it is yet not about a cancellation of the rates of the import duty on hybrid vehicles.
