Government is defending its decision to change the age of importation of cars into the country from six to four years.
Some dealers in the sector are complaining that the measures have put a strain on their operations.
They are claiming that the move has forced them to close their operations or reduce their staff.
Trade and Industry Minister, Paula Gopee Scoon, was questioned on the matter in the Senate this afternoon.
In her response the Trade Minister provided data relating to the number of foreign used cars imported in 2015 and this year.
She explained that the figures indicate that the sector continues to be vibrant, noting that there is still demand for foreign used cars.
