The Customs Department will cut or waive import tariffs on vehicles and automotive parts, on condition that the imports are for domestic consumption, said Deputy Finance Minister Boonsong Teriyapirom.

Lower tariffs will also be imposed on imported goods, to be donated to flood victims.

To ease flood impacts, importers are waived from import tariffs on machinery, while exporters are allowed six more months to request tax refund .

"These measures would last until things are back to normal," said Boonsong.
