Tax or social insurance relief

In January 2009, the Chinese government started a tax-free import scheme for certain cultural artifacts that was highly selective, with only those institutions who attained official government approval allowed to benefit from the scheme.

This represents a discriminatory tax treatment for this sector, in addition to the reduction of tariffs for some firms.
