Basic food items are allowed to enter the country duty-free

Basic food items have been allowed to enter the country duty-free to reduce the impact of the CVD-19 epidemic on society.

Ministry of Trade and Industry Communication Affairs Director, Mr Wondimu Flate, said food, sugar, bread, rice and baby milk are allowed to be imported duty-free.

According to the director, 5 litres of sesame oil, which was sold for 480 birr three months ago, is now being sold for 280-320 birr due to the lifting of the tax on food items.

Finally, only 10 licensed Diaspora account holders have been employed so far and preparations are underway to ensure that the palm oil, which is currently being distributed by the government, is being stored and imported, said Mr Wondimu.
