Ministry sets import quota for sugar, salt, eggs

The Ministry of Industry and Trade, in coordination with the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, has set a quota for import of sugar, salt, and poultry eggs this year.

Quota for salt has been set at 102,000 tons, same as previous years; refined sugar and raw sugar has been set at 73,500 tons, up by 3,500 tons from last year; poultry eggs at 42,000 dozens have increased by 2,000 dozens from last year.

Import quota for salt will be allocated directly to businesses that use salt as an ingredient to produce chemicals, medicines, and related products. Quota for poultry eggs will be given to firms that own a business registration certificate for actual import demand.

Time for import quota will be determined by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development so as not to affect domestically produced salt, sugar, and poultry eggs.
