Lusaka — Zambia will scrap a plan to impose a 7.5% import duty on copper concentrates from January 1, Finance Minister Felix Mutati said on Wednesday. "We have taken the decision that the 7.5% be deleted," Mutati told parliament. Industry has complained that the planned tax would have put a kink in the global copper supply chain by forcing neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo to send surplus mine output elsewhere.
