From July 1st, 2020 onward, the import reporting management will be in place.This is the latest move by supervising authorities on the management of sugar import after the expiry of the three-year sugar trade protection measures by May 21st, 2020. Import reporting covers all categories of sugar previously covered by the protection measures in trade, an indication that the government will continue its control over sugar import beyond import quotas though the practical implementation and the effect of control might still fall short of the protection measures in trade.
