China levies 30 percent tax on bananas

Apart from delays in travel time and difficulties in getting payment from Chinese businessmen, Taiwan exporters also face import duties as high as 30 percent on shipments of bananas to China, a fruit distributor said yesterday.

Peng Sheng-fu, deputy manager of the Taiwan Provincial Fruit Distribution and Co-op Association, said Taiwanese banana exports to China are levied with a 30 percent duty — 13 percent in customs duty and 17 percent value-added tax.
