Abidjan, Oct 13 - Ivory Coast's interim cocoa sector management committee cut levies to fund industry bodies for the 2008/2009 season on Friday by more than 60 percent to 10.06 CFA ($0.02) per kg, from 25.26 CFA last season, it said.

This year's levy will finance the management committee, replacing levies which funded the Coffee and Cocoa Bourse (BCC) and other administrative bodies brought under the management committee's control after a graft probe.

The single export tax (DUS) was unchanged at 220 CFA/kg as was the port registration tax at 10 percent of the cost, insurance & freight (CIF) value.
