HÀ NỘI — Turkey’s General Directorate for Imports has issued a notice on applying temporary anti-tax avoidance measures on Partially Oriented Yarn (POY) imported from China, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand and Việt Nam, according to the Việt Nam Competition Authority.
Turkey said the temporary measure stems from a significant increase in the imports of these products in the period 2010 - 2016. The plaintiff is Korteks Mensucat ve Sanayi Anonim Şirketi.
Under the notice, POY products imported from Việt Nam will be taxed at a rate of 36.28 per cent.
Turkey is one of Việt Nam’s largest trade partners in West Asia.
Last year, bilateral trade between two countries reached US$1.5 billion: Việt Nam exported over $1.33 billion worth of goods and imported approximately $170 million worth of commodities.— VNS
