Syria Cuts Taxes to Boost Non-Oil Exports
Syria has abolished two key taxes in order to boost non-oil exports, reported the Gulf Daily News on Wednesday.
President Bashar Al Assad issued a decree removing one tax on agricultural production and another tax on revenues received from exports, a presidential spokesman said.
Oil, which accounts for about three quarters of the country’s exports, was excluded, as were phosphate products.
