China to Eliminate Cancer Drug Import Tariffs
Starting May 1, China will eliminate tariffs on cancer drugs, cutting costs for drug importers.
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.
