Egypt imposes 'emergency' import tariffs on sugar

Egypt has imposed additional tariffs on raw and white sugar from December 2, to protect domestic producers from a surge in imports, Reuters has reported. The government imposed a "provisional safeguard measure" of 17% of the CIF value of raw sugar imports, or a minimum of EGP591 ($96.6) per tonne, and 20% on white sugar, or a minimum of EGP713 per tonne.
