Half of EU-Ukraine AA agricultural sector items agreed

Half of EU-Ukraine AA agricultural sector items agreed

Ukraine is continuing talks with the European Union. The parties have agreed on 52% of the agricultural sector items, which are required to sign the EU Association Agreement and Free Trade Zone (FTZ), the Information-Analytical Bulletin of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine informs.

"During the preparation for the Free Trade Zone and multiple visits to the European Union, the agricultural sector has already succeeded to agree on 52% of all legislation with the EU. It remains for us to agree on further 48%, we are still in the process," said Mykola Prysyazhnyuk, Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food.

The minister said that in light of the finalization of the Free Trade Zone protocol which begins tomorrow with the visit of the working group headed by Serhiy Arbuzov, First Vice Prime Minister, the Ukrainian side will insist that the products to be imported to the Ukrainian market should be exempt from export subsidies, after the FTZ has been signed.

In fact, some positive results of the interaction between the parties are available today. In 2013, Ukrainian exports of poultry meat grew by over 80%, which has been largely helped by the opening of the EU market.

Analysts point out that Ukraine has operated traditional domestic markets of meat products. But due to an annual growth of production, very soon our country will be able to fully meet domestic demand and start meat export on an increasingly large scale. For this purpose, the government attaches great importance to further expansion of markets.This will benefit both producers and the state treasury.
