The Subcommittee on Customs Tariff and Non-Tariff Regulation approved the extension of exemption from payment of import customs duties on white sugar until December 31, 2021. The maximum volume of imports for Russia will remain in the amount of 350 thousand tons, the Ministry of Economic Development said in a statement.

The previously introduced tariff benefit allowed enterprises engaged in the processing of raw sugar to save about 1 billion rubles, the report emphasizes.

The relevant initiatives will be sent to the Eurasian Economic Commission for consideration.
