The Council of Ministers in Belarus is introducing licensing for the imports of cars and tyres.
Public authorities are working on a draft law, according to which licensing could be introduced in the country for imports of cars and tyres from outside the Customs Union. “According to unofficial sources in the government, the draft law has already been prepared, and now we are having consultations with the government in order to persuade them not to make such a decision. Our opponents in the Council of Ministers confirm that the document exists”, claimed a representative of a Belarus business union.
According to him, businesses will be obliged to license the imports of cars and car tyres in the case those are imported from outside the Customs Union. The institution of licensing on this two groups of goods is scheduled to be introduced on 1 July for half a year.
