YEREVAN. – Customs clearance fees for cars imported from Georgia should not go up in the next 5-10 years, head of the NGO dealing with car imports told Armenian News-NEWS.am.
Tigran Hovhannisyan said car importers have no doubt that everything will be exactly as stated by President Serzh Sargsyan a month ago.
In an interview with public television in June, President Sargsyan said one of the topics of talks with the Eurasian Economic Commission are the rates of customs duties for cars.
“We hope that everything will be exactly as the president said,” he emphasized.
Hovhannisyan said it is encouraging that the President specifically mentioned conditions for the import of cars while commenting on the negotiations on Armenia's accession to the Eurasian Economic Union.
In Armenia, the customs rates are lower than in the Eurasian Union, but Armenia has requested postponement of the application for 5-10 years, and the countries of the Union respect the request of Armenian side.
