For the next two years, Cabinet has decided to waive the customs duty rate on all renewable energy products and items coming into the British Virgin Islands.

Notably, all members were present, with the exception of the Minister for Transportation, Works and Utilities Hon. Kye Rymer, who was overseas on private business.

The report said Cabinet: “Reviewed and: approved the Customs Management and Duties (Amendment to Schedule 4) Order, 2021, which seeks to amend the rate of customs duty applied to all imported renewable energy products/items, energy efficiency product/items and LED products/items as follows: i. that a zero customs duty rate be applied to any renewable energy product/items being imported into the Territory for a period of 2 years with effect from 1st July 2021 to 30th June 2023.”
