Border clearance levy - consultation underway
Consultation with primary industry stakeholders is also underway for the new border clearance levy that was recently announced in the Government’s 2015 budget.
This levy, in the form of a passenger surcharge, will provide sustainable funding for New Zealand's biosecurity system and increased protection at the border; and KVH is fully supportive of this levy.
Last week KVH attended a consultation meeting and will be making a formal submission on behalf of the kiwifruit industry. Once finalised this will become available on the KVH website.
