A tariff of 7.5% will be imposed in 2005 on imported hot-rolled coils, used in construction, the decree obtained by Reuters on Thursday said.
The tariff will be cut to 5% in 2007 until 2010, the decree said. Before being lifted this year, the import duty on hot-rolled coils stood at 20%.
A 12.5% duty will be imposed in 2005 on cold-rolled coils, used in items such as cars and home appliances.
The tariff will be cut to 10% in 2007, and lowered again to 7.5% in 2010.
The tariff previously stood at 25%. Indonesias steel production stands at around 2.6 million tonnes a year.
