Baghdad, May 29 (Rn) – Committee announced that the economy and investment in the Iraqi Council of Representatives on Tuesday rejected the government’s request to wait in the application of tariff law which was passed in 2008.
The Iraqi government has said it called on the House of Representatives of the patient as the application of tariff law scheduled to commence by early next month for non-completion of the foundations necessary for the successful application of the law.
He said the Commission’s decision Mahma Khalil told the Kurdish news agency (Rn) that “there is a demand for the government to activate the law of the customs tariff in January of this year has been applied throughout the time.”
He explained that “the request of the Government of the House of Representatives be patient as the application of tariff law to be in the next month is not acceptable, and we fear that the government may come under pressure from traders and some states to reverse the application of the law.”
The Ministry of Finance has decided last March to begin the application of tariff end of June next after the futures last year to more than once because of the demand by some countries and traders.
And activating the new tariff law to cancel the old law is the subject by the civil administrator of Iraq after 2003, Paul Bremer, which provides for the payment of 5% tax on all goods imported from outside the country.
