EC To Reconsider Liberalization Of Trade With Ukraine
According to Euractiv, the situation with Ukrainian agricultural exports disadvantages EU farmers, hence the European Commission is considering revisiting the trade liberalization regime with Ukraine.
Last year, the European Union adopted a temporary trade liberalization policy with Ukraine, which is in effect until June 2023. This rule eliminates all tariff quotas and entry price system usage, grants some Ukrainian products zero customs rates, and mandates that anti-dumping charges will not be applied to Ukrainian imports even after the rule’s expiration.
« The Commission will assess opening of the agri-food goods market between the EU and Ukraine. Following complaints from member states that the influx of agricultural products disadvantaged EU farmers, the European Commission is considering reviewing the special suspension of all tariffs and quotas on Ukrainian agri-food exports in the upcoming weeks, » the newspaper writes.
