But whether the move will ease the financial burden on Chinese patients remains to be seen, especially since the value-added tax will drop only slightly.
The State Council, the country’s cabinet, decided during a Thursday meeting (link in Chinese) that anti-cancer drugs will be exempt from import tariffs.
