    Default Dominican used car importers vow shutdown

    Dominican used car importers vow shutdown

    Santo Domingo.- Dominican Republic´s three major associations of used auto importers on Tuesday announced the suspension of imports in response to the Customs Agency´s (DGA) “exaggerated” increase in the assigned value of used vehicles which they affirm is driving them toward bankruptcy.

    The president of Asocivu, Ramón Ramos; of Anadive, Luis Taveras and of Adeci, Jose Fernandez warned that their associations´ 1,200 dealers will not stand still and will confront the face the Agency´s abuses.

    At a press conference in Hotel Emajador the business leaders said their sector´s decision to halt imports and other actions aims to draw president Danilo Medina´s attention because the DGA has ignored their “fair” demands.

    “We have exhausted the Customs Agency´s channels of dialogue, we´ve visited officials of that institution on numerous occasions to make them aware of the difficult situation affecting our industry. With unsuccessful attempts for a friendly outcome, since we´ve been demanding a solution for several months, which is to implement an evaluation system according to what the parties implemented several years ago, based on a scale of real depreciation for importe3d vehicles,” said Taveras.

    The heads of Anadive, Asocivu and Adeci said after going through a revision of the vehicles valuation process, Customs financial officials had pledged to make changes to those vehicles which have shown a steep increase.

    “The lack of a response promised by the DGA leads us to implement a shutdown in the import of vehicles until compliance of the agreements is reached.”
