The federal cabinet also approved the first National Tariff Policy that aims at ensuring transparency, predictability and institutionalizing the entire structure of tariff regime of the country. The cabinet members were taken into confidence over 18-point agenda, including Pak-India tension.
Highlighting salient features of the policy, Secretary Commerce Muhammad Younis Dagha said that the major objectives of the National Tariff Policy (NTP), which has been drafted after detailed and comprehensive discussions with the stakeholders, is to improve competitiveness through access to raw materials, increase employment opportunities by attracting investment through transparent and predictable tariff regime and remove anomalies in tariff structure, causing distortions.
“The policy principles include tariff as a trade policy instrument, reducing exemptions and concessions, cascading tariff structures with stage of processing of a product, strategic protection to domestic industry and competitive import substitution. The new policy also envisages establishment of a broad-based Tariff Policy Center in the Ministry of Commerce to formulate proposals for improving tariff structure in pursuance of the objectives of the National Tariff Policy,” he said.
