Summary: The Nueva Granada’s government outlines here the laws on duties on imports approved in 1834. The document includes the levies to be charged on agricultural imports and import of merchandise.
Historical Notes: Two major problems defined the development of the 19th-century Colombian economy: how to dismantle a range of anachronistic colonial economic institutions and how to incorporate the nation into global markets. Institutional reforms included the abolition of colonial tribute and its replacement by levies on imports, ending the state monopoly over the production and commercialization of tobacco, and the elimination of indigenous collective rights to land. The establishment of levies on imports represented the main source of income for the national government for much of the 19th-century.
