Import duty exemptions on raw and white sugar has been extended till 30 June 2010. The exemption was initially granted in August 2009 till December 2009. Prior to the exemption, there was a 2% duty on raw sugar and 10% duty on refined sugar.
The egyptian cabinet has decided to extend the exemption of raw and white sugar imports from duties until June 30 2012. A measure said to fight the negative effects of a rise of global sugar prices.
