GCC imports through UAE reach Dh36bn

Total GCC imports through UAE ports and borders soared to Dh36 billion from 2003 to 2007, according to Mohammed Khalifa bin Fahad Al Muhairi, Director General of the Federal Customs Authority (FCA). He said the Clearance Committee endorsed the customs duties charged against imports until 2007. It then transferred them fully to the members “in line with the commitment of the FCA to make the unified customs experience a success”, he added. The FCA completed transfer of Dh495.8 million to GCC members, being customs duties charged against goods, which crossed via UAE borders and ports. By Wam
