Syria’s import taxes on cars in too high

Published December 10th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

The Syrian Customs General Authority has recently imposed new taxes on the import of new cars, reported Al-Watan newspaper. As a result, a new car purchase remains a dream for millions of Syrians.  


The new custom fees have made the new car price in Syria into the highest in the world. The average price of a new car in Syria rises as high as 2-3 million Syrian pounds, while the price of the same car in the origin country does not exceed SP 500,000. However, the market sources reported that the old cars prices fell by 25-50 percent in the recent year. — (Albawaba-MEBG)
