Authorities in Suqian city have tried their best to reduce fees and taxations for the local enterprises.
Shuyang Yasen Tonghui Company imported nearly US$30 million on the import of a medium and high density fiberboard production line from Europe. At the critical moment when the company is in urgent need of fund, the tariff reduction policies extended by the local customs have brought the greatest convenience to the enterprise.
Suqian Customs issued the Implementation Plan for Optimizing Port Business Environment and Facilitating Cross-border Trade in a bid to optimize the soft environment of port business, and implement the import and export tax exemption policy for high-end equipment, key parts and raw materials through 16 hard measures.
