Ukraine is interested in the WTO membership, but intends to defend its producers, as Prime Minister of Ukraine Victor Yanukovich declared Tuesday.

“We will never join the WTO without estimate of consequences,” the Premier said.

At the same time he noted that the government plans to consider the issue concerning prolongation of period of validity of limits on access of a number of goods to the Ukrainian market. According to Yanukovich, wide opening of borders for a number of goods may destroy native producers of these goods.

The head of the government also expressed an opinion that Ukraine needs to hold public and parliamentary hearings on the WTO accession. “We need to prepare seriously, and only then to open the doors,” he added.
