Approximate reading time: 1 minute

Mozambique’s National Director of Foreign Trade, Amílcar Arone, has said the government will review import, export and transit tariffs for goods, in afford to “bring Mozambique into line with other countries in the region, in addition to ensuring a better balance between the services provided and the amounts charged”.

Today’s Noticias reports that the new levies, which have not yet been published, will be determined on the basis of a study conducted under the Trade Facilitation Agreement of the World Trade Organisation and supported by the United States Agency for International Development in Mozambique.

According to Arone, the new levies will be accompanied by a revision of the legislation on exports and imports which will ensure that the process becomes more efficient, reducing customs clearance time and minimising bureaucracy.

One of the main problems highlighted out by Mozambican companies is the high tariffs on imports and exports, as well as the bureaucracy surrounding transactions.
