The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed the draft decree of reference to the European Parliament considering the additional trade preferences for the Ukrainian goods. 230 MPs voted in the affirmative.

Olena Sotnyk, the MP from Self-Reliance, representative of the Committee on European Integration submitted the document during the session.

‘The dialogues are conducted more than a year and now it is the discussion between European Parliament. European Commission and Ukraine towards the issue of the extension of the existing trade preferences within Free Trade Area’, she said.

According to her, it is connected with the fact that the European Commission prepared the draft law a year ago that was transferred to the European Parliament. It provides the additional preferences within Free Trade Area. However, the amendments were made and some quotas were shortened, particularly on wheat, tomatoes and urea.

The Committee of European Integration and the Ministry of Economy discussed the possibility of the political appeal of the Ukrainian Parliament to the European Parliament to ask them to support the draft decree of the European Commission to the full extent as it was supposed and do not exclude the goods and the zero tariffs from the decree.

Earlier, the level of the Ukrainian export was analyzed after the implementation of the Free Trade Area.
