In all events there is, however, a positive thing, which is to increase profits. In 2018, the income from pre-existing and new duties amounted to $ 41 billion, or 0.2% of GDP. In ITS to believe that in 2019, the last figure will increase to 0,3%, and in the next decade will range from 0.3 to 0.4% of GDP.
