Why the delay in restructuring chicken tariffs?

Amid all the arguments for and against import tariffs, there has been silence on a potentially decisive development – the complete restructuring of the chicken import tariff system.

The restructure is one of the objectives of the poultry master plan. More than a year ago, the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition, Ebrahim Patel, called for an investigation and recommendations from the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC).

The poultry industry has said it hopes the restructure will result in a number of changes, including the introduction of an import reference price, which would address unfair and illegal trade.

FairPlay understands that the report has been completed, and is sitting on Patel’s desk.

When will he announce what is in that report and what the government intends to do about it?
