Quotas set for salt, eggs
The Ministry of Industry and Trade has issued Circular No 04/2019/TT-BCT setting import quotas for salt and eggs for April 17 to December 31, 2019.
The import quotas follow Viet Nam’s commitment to WTO rules. Under the commitment, the country has to import four items including sugar, salt, eggs and tobacco.
The import quota for salt is 110,000 tonnes and 662,172 for eggs this year.
The ministry said it would allocate the salt for chemical production and pharmaceutical use.
These supplies would be used for production purposes only.
Last year, the import quotas for salt and eggs were 110,000 tonnes and 630,636, respectively.
