Question:              When will the Export Zone construction start?

Response:             The export zone construction will start as soon the surveys and environmental experts have finished surveying the construction site possibly by June it has to be started.

Question:              Palm oil is on the STR common list why it that we are still paying 5200 as taxes to URA is.

Response: STR only exempts palm oil for paying import duty which is 10% and which the 10% was deducted because previously it used to pay  8300/ per jerry can and when we went to URA and pleaded with the Incharge the deducted the 10% and it only pays VAT and others taxes.

Question: Why do we still pay market dues to the market tenderers even qualify for STR.

Response: The bilateral agreement between project member states allows for local tax or revenue collections. However for goods on transit must not pay the local market dues.

Question: We who are already in the market when time for construction reaches shall we be compensated.

Response: No, but there is an upcoming vendor registration exercise to ascertain who the current vendors are answered by the Town Council and the Ministry of Trade Industry and Cooperatives.

Question: After construction will this Market be for free or we shall be paying some money

Response: The Town Council and the Ministry of Trade will set a certain fee at which these stalls and rooms will be rented. However there will be other bills like electricity, Water, security, garbage collection fees etc.
