Players: Malaysia to lift customs duty on Japanese PVC in 2015

Players in Malaysia report that the government is planning to eliminate customs duties on Japanese PVC cargoes as of January 1, 2015.

A pipe manufacturer stated, “Japanese PVC imports to Malaysia will be exempted from customs duties starting from next year due to the Malaysia-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (MJEPA) which came into force on July 13, 2006. However, we are feeling uncertain as to whether or not Japanese PVC prices will be as competitive as Chinese cargoes after the duties are lifted.”

A Shanghai-based trader also said, “Duties on PVC imports from Japan to Malaysia will be eliminated next year. We think that this will not affect our business too much as Japanese cargoes will still be expensive.”
