Sugar Import Tariffs to Fall

Raw sugar imports are expected to decline in February, then rise after a cut in import tariffs, the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies said.

The think tank said in a monthly review Friday that 102,000 tons may be imported to Russia in February, down from 150,000 tons in January. "483,000 tons of Brazilian raws are set to be shipped to Black Sea [ports]. … The bulk of this volume, as well as no less than 150,000 tons of already unloaded raws, will be cleared by customs after the $50 per ton tariff becomes effective," the report said.

The government has proposed cutting the raw sugar import tariff in March to $50 per ton from $140.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
