China cancels export rebates

The Chinese Ministry of Finance, together with the national Industrial and Commercial Bureau, has cancelled export tax rebates on some 40 pesticide active ingredients with effect from August 1st. The abolition of the rebate, from its previous level of 5%, could mean a 6% rise in export prices for the products affected, according to Hong Kong-based agrochemical marketing and consultancy firm Psyche Chemicals. The rebate, which stood at 11% in 2005, was introduced by the Chinese government to encourage agrochemical exports ( Agrow No 475, p 20).
