Duty free concessions extended to January 15
The annual duty free concessions on imported barrels have been extended to January 15, 2018. The initiative was originally to run from November 15 to December 31, 2017, but was extended because of the late arrival of some vessels. Last year the concession was also extended to January 10, 2017. According to Prime Minister Gonsalves, 20,000 persons benefited from the concessions in 2016.
