Brazil has announced the elimination of import tariffs on six items

On March 10 local time, Brazilian Vice President Alckmin announced via social media that Brazil will remove tariffs on six kinds of imports starting from March 10. The six items include two different types of steel, two aluminum plates, wristbands for measuring blood pressure and pulse, and radar antennas. Mr Alckmin said import duties had previously ranged from 12 per cent to 16 per cent and that the government would implement a "zero tariff" policy on such imports for some time to come.


On May 23, 2022, Brazil's Economy Ministry announced a 10 percent reduction in import tariffs on beans, meat, pasta, biscuits, rice and construction materials. The policy covers 87 per cent of Brazil's total imports, covering a total of 6,195 items, and runs from June 1, 2022, to December 31, 2023. This is the second time since November 2022 that the Brazilian government has announced a 10 percent tariff cut on such imports.
