AGR emphasized that in order to enjoy such benefit it is a requirement that such products be differentiated, in the accompanying baggage, from other types of items.

The Ministry of Finance and Prices also extended the measure of not placing tariffs on such imports, that benefit, too, national enterprises, as well as non-state businesses, the report adds.

Authorities explained that there are still shortages in the supply of food and other basic products due to the hardening of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the world economic crisis.
