Jan. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Argentina’s Interior Commerce Secretary Guillermo Moreno increased requirements for the import of goods into the South American country, newspaper El Cronista reported.
To obtain approval for imports, companies must now send a form detailing their planned transactions by e-mail to Moreno’s office, the Buenos Aires-based newspaper said, without explaining where it obtained the information.
The new request is in addition to a sworn statement that companies will have to present to the national tax agency from Feb. 1 to gain permission to purchase merchandise for import.
