Ministry scraps export tax on coconuts

Update: September, 07/2012 - 10:19

BEN TRE — The Ministry of Finance (MoF) has decided to remove export tax on coconut starting this month.

MoF made this decision after receiving a petition from the People's Committee of southern Ben Tre Province, known as the country's "kingdom of coconut", to stop imposing a 3-per-cent export tax on coconut because of slumping prices.

Currently, each coconut is sold at VND2,000 (US$0.09), a price five times lower than that of previous years.-VNS
