Panama: Zero Tariff for Computers

The government decided to set zero duty on computers, printers and ink not costing more than $1,000.

Thursday, August 26, 2010

Panama’s council of ministers has approved a motion to modify an import tariff category.

The proposal, presented by the Minister for Trade and Industry, Roberto Henríquez, seeks to unify the regimes of most products with the aim of avoiding discretionary tariffs being applied in customs offices and reducing the cost of consumers’ basic shopping basket.

Henríquez also explained that a zero tariff would be applied to computer equipment not costing more than $1,000 and follows the recent decision by the Ricardo Martinelli administration to give a computer to every Panamanian student.
