YEREVAN. – The data of the Armenia's State Revenue Committee indicates that the number of cars imported to Armenia increased 4 times over two years, said the head of Armenia's State Revenue Committee (SRC) David Ananyan.
The number of cars imported last year increased by 71.2 percent as compared to 2017 and by 298 percent as compared to 2016.
German, Japanese, American and Korean cars from Georgia, US and Japan were mainly imported to Armenia, he noted.
“The growth is due to the fact that citizens of other Eurasian Economic Union states are importing cars from the third countries to Armenia. The customs duty for importing a car in Armenia is currently lower than for example in Kazakhstan,” he said. According to him, Armenian citizens began to buy more cars, because customs clearance with an invoice reduces the price of a car.
