Commerce Division and National Tariff Commission (NTC) have undertaken an exercise to identify the inputs/raw materials of the export oriented products and the tariff structure of these inputs. The objective is to rationalize the tariffs in order to make exports more competitive and facilitate participation of local manufacturers, including SMEs, in global and regional value chains.


Commerce Division and NTC have identified tariff lines which are being considered for revision of tariff in the Budget 2018-19, to bring positive improvement in the tariff structure. The proposed tariff rationalization will improve the competitiveness of the leading export sectors including textiles, apparel etc.


The draft List of Tariff Lines being Considered for Tariff Rationalization with proposed rates is attached.


Members are requested to provide comments latest by Saturday, 28th April, 2018 for onward submission to Commerce Division.


Thanks and Best Regards,

Khadim Rasool

Secretary General-PHMA
