Bahrain waives $169m customs fees in 2011
Manama, February 2, 2012
Customs fees worth BD64 million ($169.75 million) were waived for Bahraini-run factories last year, the Interior Ministry said.
It was part of GCC directives to exempt all industrial facilities from customs fees, including machinery, equipment, packaging and other industrial products, a statement from the ministry added.
The list of factories was suggested by the National Commission for the Support and Protection of National Industries. It comprises representatives from the ministry's General Directorate of Customs, and the Industry and Commerce Ministry. – TradeArabia News Service
