Import tariff

In addition to the exemptions for domestic products, the policy also bestowed exemptions to both import tariffs and import VAT on imported equipment.

This part of the policy was renewed in 2011, but in 2016, the scheme was changed so that imported goods no longer enjoyed these benefits, tipping the policy in favour of domestic goods.
