Simplified Trade Regime and Joint Border Committee launched at Goli Border in Nebbi district
- Implementation of the Simplified Trade Regime (STR) at Goli
- According to the Trade Information Desk Officer
at Goli border George Orochi, STR currently applies to only agricultural
products. Agricultural products worth $2,000 and below do not pay import duties
under the STR arrangement.
- Manufactured products worth $2,000 and below are
still paying import duty because the required document – the Certificate of
Origin that is issued by URA is not available at the border.
- Simplified documents for conducting business at
the border like simple customs documents are not yet available
