COVID-19: Turkey Lifts Tariffs On Medical Supply Imports

Tariffs on ethyl alcohol, disposable medical mask, medical ventilator lifted to ensure equipment security in fighting virus.

Turkey removed import tariffs on ethyl alcohol, disposable medical mask and medical ventilators amid coronavirus pandemic, the trade minister said on Wednesday.
Decisions announced in the Official Gazette will meet the potential need that may arise and ensure the security of supply," Ruhsar Pekcan said on Twitter.
The tariff relief of 10% on bulk ethyl alcohol imports aimed to support production of disinfectant and cologne, traditional ethanol-based scented disinfectant in Turkey.
The additional customs tax of 20% on the disposable medical mask and 13% on medical ventilator are lifted, Pekcan elaborated.
On March 13, Turkey temporarily stopped requiring ethanol in gasoline to help boost disinfectant production.
Suspending ethanol's use in gasoline will provide an additional 20,000 cubic meters for the production of disinfectants and colognes in the country, according to Turkey's Energy Market Regulatory Authority.
