Damask hosts the Ukrainian-Syrian business-forum.

In the course of the event, Syrian Finance Minister Mohammed Hussein proposed Ukraine to launch selling cement to Syria.

“We badly need to buy 1 million tons of cement. Ukraine may do (to sell – ed.) it, we are open to discuss it,” said Finance Minister Hussein. Syria is interested to buy Ukrainian cement because of its attractive price which is much more less than the world one. If Ukraine agrees on the proposal, a relevant contract will be signed as soon as possible.

The Syrian Minister also asked Ukraine for preferential export duties for Syrian agro industrial production. He stressed that he had initiated this question at the meeting with then PM Tymoshenko. He had been pledged to get the preferential regime but then nothing was given at all.

Minister Hussein emphasises that regarding negative balance of merchandise trade with Ukraine, the preferential duties is very important issue.
