Sri Lanka: Action has been taken to implement special commodity levy (single levy) on imported vegetable oil and fish and to revise existing special commodity levies for sugar, garlic, dhal and watana having taken the reduction of international market prices into consideration.
According to UN Comtrade, Sri Lanka's bilateral trade on the stated tariff line did not exceed USD 1 million for any single trading partner in 2011, the year prior to the imposition of this measure. Hence, no countries are listed as affected trading partners.
