This will allow the Primorye to revive a business importing cars from Japan
VLADIVOSTOK. February 17. VOSTOK-MEDIA - The Russian authorities are willing to reduce tariffs on foreign cars from 30% to 25% next year, which compares favorably to the respective businesses in the Primorye region. However, for this, Russia must first join the WTO - it is possible that we will take into the World Trade Organization in 2012.
At the same time director of the department of trade negotiations Ministry of Economic Development, Maxim Medvedkov said that fees were increased to 30%, only as one of measures to support the domestic automotive industry. And this measure has paid off - sales of AvtoVAZ and other Russian firms have grown, foreign manufacturers have opened their own production in Russia, believes Mail.ru.
Recall that Russia is trying to join the WTO since the mid-90's, and the most active attempts to enter into this trade organization began to take during the presidency of Vladimir Putin. And a positive move in this direction is. Russia has even managed to agree on WTO accession with the United States. So everything goes to the fact that in 2012 we still find ourselves in this organization.
