Indonesia striving for zero import tariff of fishery products in EU

Indonesia’s Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Affairs is striving for import tariff cuts for the country’s fishery products imported by the EU. Nilanto Perbowo, Director General of Marine and Fishery Products Competitiveness Promotion, said the import tariffs imposed by the EU are still quite high, at around 6-24%. 
However, he said, other countries such as Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea and Vietnam, are believed to have secured much lower import duty tariffs. Some are not subject to import tariffs. “It is now time for Indonesia to also get the same privilege,” he explained.
