He points out that the import of inputs (tax-free!) for research into public universities has fallen dramatically. US$193 million was imported in 2021, through 180 educational institution partners, versus an average of US$300 million in the previous two years. The data is compiled by the National Council of Support Institutions for Higher Education and Scientific and Technological Research Institutions (Confies).
