The Republic of Moldova cancelled the previously imposed restrictions on imports of Ukrainian cement, as well as meat and dairy products. The respective document took effect on January 1.
The two governments agreed on that during the previous session of the intergovernmental commission for economic cooperation; it took place in November 2016.
Vice Prime Minister of Moldova Oktavian Kalmyk told the Ukrainian side that his country wouldn’t extend any of the restrictions imposed on the imports of Ukrainian cement and meat and dairy products.
The restrictions were introduced in spring 2016, so as ‘to protect the domestic producer’, as the Moldovan side put it.
