Mexico: Lime import tariffs will be re-established

The Federal Government will revoke the temporary decree by which tariffs for the importation of lime were eliminated due to the country's alleged citrus shortage. The decree will come to an end this month and will not be renewed. Justice is done for the lime producers of the Mexican and Persian varieties, especially from Michoacan, who led this fight since May.

According to the Federal Government, there isn't a shortage of limes in Mexico. The national production is good and therefore the country ranks fourth worldwide as a producer and exporter of these citrus fruits.

The national and state president of the Mexican Lime Product System recalled that, since the elimination of tariffs on limes, lime producers of the 23 states that grow this fruit initiated proceedings to show the Mexican citrus industry's potential and stop the tariff elimination decree.

"They realized that Mexico doesn't needed any more lemons, it's clear that they had taken the decision very lightly, it would be wise to rectify it and that's what they have done," said the leader.
