Customs clearance term to be reduced threefold in Azerbaijan
Baku, Azerbaijan, May 1
By Emin Aliyev - Trend:
The customs clearance term for import-export operations will be reduced threefold in Azerbaijan, head of the Azerbaijani State Customs Committee Aydin Aliyev told journalists on April 30.
"The state committee has prepared a package of proposals to the government to amend certain regulations," he added. "This work is conducted in accordance with the presidential decree on additional measures for the development of entrepreneurship. And one of the most important innovations is the proposal to reduce the duration of customs clearance. As it is known, it is 72 hours and we propose to bring it down to 24 hours."
"This will allow supporting the agricultural producers, as their products are perishable," he said.
"Another change will be more global," he said.
"The matter rests in a package of amendments to the presidential decree on the liberalization of foreign trade as of 1997," he said. "These proposals will eliminate some small problems in the customs declaration and solve various aspects to be coordinated."
