The auction took place on September 23, with the participation of eight enterprises, including six registering to import raw sugar and two refined sugar.

Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade Tran Quoc Khanh said that to ensure a fair competitive environment between domestically produced sugar and imported sugar, the MoIT issued Decision No 1569/QĐ-BCT dated August 5 this year on the establishment of the Council for the allocation of tariff quotas for sugar imports through the auction method.

According to the plan announced in Decision 1649/QĐ-BCT dated August 22 by the ministry, the amount of imported sugar allocated by auction method is 113,000 tonnes this year, including 79,000 tonnes of raw sugar and 34,000 tonnes of refined sugar.
