Indonesia To Impose Safeguard Duty On Clothing Imports

UK Ethical Consumer Spending Hits Record High, Report Shows

Indonesia is to levy safeguard duties – ranging from US$ 0.44 / 11.29 per item – on articles of apparel/clothing accessories from China, Bangladesh, Singapore and Vietnam, four countries that each provide more than 3% of the total of such imports. The country has now lodged a notification to that effect with the World Trade Organisation’s Committee of Safeguard.

In specific terms, the levy will apply to such items as casual and formal upper garments, lower garments, suits, dresses and ensembles, outerwear, clothing accessories, babies’ garments, neckwear and headwear. The tariffs will be implemented in three separate tranches, with the rates for the second and third impositions said to be lower.
