Belarus likely to increase import duties for old cars

The Belarus's Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment Protection has proposed to increase import duties for the vehicles that are older than 10 years. Under the proposal that was filed with the Belarus's Customs Authority, customs duty of EUR2 per one cubic centimeter could be levied on the imported vehicles. The similar duty is currently effective for the cars that are older than 14 years.

To balance the proposal, the ministry also proposed to lower customs duties for the import of brand-new foreign cars to Belarus, according to the Interfax news agency.
