Import duty decreased on construction steel

The central government cut import duties from 14 to 5 percent Tuesday on rebar used in construction.

Casa Presidencial said that the reduction was an effort to help the construction sector and to generate more employment.

Various ministries supported the plan. The descriptions of the products involved are technical, and not all the metal used in construction benefits from the reduction.

China is a major exporter of construction steel.
