President pledges duty concession for miners
With gold declarations still worryingly down, Presi-dent Donald Ramotar last evening said that duty- free concessions for a certain type of vehicle that miners have made representation to Government for are being worked on and should be unveiled soon, the Government Informa-tion Agency said yesterday.
“We will grant these of course. We will want to tie (it) to gold declaration, and we want to tie it to payment of taxes in our society so that those of you who will be qualified in that area can be assured that this will be looked into,” he told those gathered at the Opening and Award ceremony for Mining Week 2014, at the Gravity Lounge, Camp and Regent streets.
Ramotar lauded the work of stakeholders in the mining sector.
