3-year duty-free entry for agricultural, industrial products
Foreign affairs ministers of the EU agreed at a meeting on 17 July to grant Ukraine preferential trade terms from the end of September, for a period of three years. The measure comes in recognition of reform efforts taken by Kiev to bolster the country's fragile economy. Ukraine will have the opportunity to export more industrial and agricultural goods to the bloc free of tariffs. "We are allowing more Ukrainian products to be exported to the EU," said Sven Mikser, the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Estonia.
