Import duty reduction is real; Ghanaians feeling it – NPP


The decision New Patriotic Party (NPP) has depicted as a distinct advantage, the approach by the Akufo-Addo government to lessen benchmark estimations of imported merchandise and auto vehicles by half and 30% separately.

Tending to a news meeting on Sunday, seventh April, 2019 at the gathering’s central station in Accra, the General Secretary of the NPP, Mr. John Boadu lauded Akufo-Addo and his administration, especially the Economic Management Team (EMT) driven by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for tuning in to the calls of Ghanaians and decreasing import obligations for them.

The decrease, Mr. Boadu accepts will help facilitate the weight and hardships on Ghanaians and furthermore decrease the costs of products in the market for the normal Ghanaian.

“To encourage exchange, make our ports focused in the district, and to additionally decrease the expenses of merchandise and enterprises even with a solitary digit swelling, the government has presented a heap of measures at the ports that are noteworthy,” Boadu demonstrated.

In clarifying the impacts of these decreases, Mr. Boadu saw that “the impact of this is the dutiable estimation of state a holder heap of tin tomatoes which may have been stating GH?100,000.00 drawing in state 10% in all-out expenses, charges, and obligations of GH?10,000.00 has quickly progressed toward becoming GH?50,000.00, bringing about lower all out expenses, charges, and obligations of just GH?5,000.00. This thusly means reasonable costs of tin tomatoes available for Ghanaians of all salary gatherings and employment for more individuals along the line and so on”.

Mr. Boadu ripped into the Minority NDC who have made a few endeavors to make the feeling that the decreases won’t affect the net obligations paid by merchants. In his counter, Mr. Boadu showed a few displays, including a declaration by the child of previous Deputy Attorney General and an NDC Member of Parliament, Dr. Dominic Ayine to propel his case.

In a Facebook post on Thursdays fourth April 2018, only multi-day after the declaration of the arrangement, Dr. Ayine’s child, Ross Berizaya Ayine expressed “I am awed and satisfied with the NPP and Dr. Bawumia for the decrease in import obligations. This is an incredible move and by a long shot, it is the best arrangement in administration and the correct way. God favor all who added to this achievement and to the mind (s) behind this unbelievable move. I cleared a Honda Civic Touring at GHc31,000 simply a week ago and clearing another under GHc18,000 today. In the event that every single progressive government could start these sort of arrangements, Ghana as a nation would be a superior spot to live. Governmental issues aren’t about hues however reality”.

This record by Mr. Ayine has been substantiated by the President of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTU) and his individuals, just as a few people who have cleared autos and products at the ports since Thursday. The decrease in this manner seems, by all accounts, to be a mainstream approach that is probably going to cause critical decreases in the costs of merchandise and auto vehicles available.
