Ukraine plans to increase the quotas for duty-free supply of agricultural products to the EU
The quotas for duty-free supply of Ukrainian agricultural commodities to the European Union, provided in the current edition of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, are quite insufficient, and Ukraine plans to increase them, declared Andrei Dykun, Deputy Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, on June 10 at the press-conference "Ukrainian agro-industrial complex and the EU".
According to him, the European partners are ready to listen for Ukraine on the issue, and the political will to settle it still presents.
At the same time, A.Dykun informed that after in late April 2014 the European Union unilaterally nullified the customs duties for a number of Ukrainian products under the certain quotas, the domestic agricultural producers used some of them only.
