150% duty on semi-finished leather exports from Ethiopia
Dec '11
The Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED) of Ethiopia has informed that starting this month export of semi-finished leather from the country would be subjected to a 150 percent tax.

The new tax declared by the MoFED and the Leather Industry Development Institute is aimed at boosting finished leather and leather products exports from the country.

The Ministry of Trade representative Ahmed Nuru while addressing the attendees during a half day consultative forum held during last month to discuss the leather sector of the country said that the step has been initiated in order to restrain export of raw hides and skin from December onwards.

He said that the domestic leather units have enhanced their value-addition capacity for leather processing and now have capacity to export finished leather products.

Director General of the Ethiopian Leather Industry Development Institute, Wondu Legesse said that export of raw hides and skins have caused the country to miss several benefits.

The institute he said would extend the support that the leather units need to develop capacity to produce high quality leather items which can withstand global competition.
