In addition, any oil and gas exploration equipment detailed in Circular No. 39/2012 is also eligible (see related measure for more info on this announcement). This refers to the HS codes included in this intervention.
The announcement was a direct response to the State Council's Guobanfa 19 of 2014 - see related measure.
