The Polish government is currently studying the mechanisms for issuing licenses to Ukrainian exporters of agriproducts proposed by Ukraine. This was stated by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development of Poland Robert Telus during an online meeting with the Minister of Agriculture and Food of Ukraine Mykola Solskyy, the press service of the Ministry of Agrarian Policy reported on September 27.
“The Polish government is discussing this issue, in particular, determining who will approve or disapprove the issuance of such licenses,” said R. Telus.
Besides, Robert Telus drew attention to the fact that Poland wanted Ukraine to withdraw the complaint it submitted to the WTO regarding restrictions on the export of agricultural products to neighboring EU countries.
Following the meeting, it was agreed to discuss the results of this issue study in a week.
In addition, M. Solskyy said that in the coming days, there will be a tripartite meeting of the Ministers of Agriculture of Ukraine, Poland, and Lithuania regarding the transfer of veterinary control to the territory of the country of export destination in order to improve transit through Poland.
“The Minister of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine said that a similar procedure must be agreed for the transit of agricultural products through Polish territory and to Germany. He reminded that in August such a control mechanism was agreed upon by Hungary and Slovakia,” the press service added.
