Exporters seek tax cuts for rest of the year

The government has been urged to cut withholding and income taxes applying to exporters as an urgent measure to boost export growth in the remaining months of 2009. The call was made yesterday by exporters themselves, saying that proposed cuts to import duties may be ineffective in bolstering export growth in all sectors. Next week the Commerce Ministry is to propose a cut in import duties to the Cabinet, as a measure to promote export growth in the second half of the year. (The Nation)
