Baku, Azerbaijan, Jan. 19
By Anvar Mammadov – Trend:
It is necessary to establish the production of automobile tires in Azerbaijan, Director of the Expert Center for Real Estate Ramil Osmanli said at a press conference in Baku Jan. 19.
Osmanli noted that currently, there is a plant for production of tires in Azerbaijan, but it has not operated since the collapse of the USSR.
“There is a need to launch such a production in Azerbaijan, since tires are one of the main parts of cars and play some role in pricing,” he noted.
The expert added that the increase in imports duties on used tires is also aimed at stimulating the domestic production.
“This decision plays an important role in supporting domestic production, but production must first be created and developed. Only after the creation of production capable of ensuring domestic consumption we can speak about an increase in tariffs,” added Osmanli.
Duties on import of used tires for cars, trucks and buses stand at $10 per tire.
