The European Commission is willing to back an increase in quota on Ukrainian steel mill production export to the EU in 2006 by 4.9% (52,000 tons).
Such result has been achieved in the Ukraine-EU negotiations held in Kyiv on September 7-8, the Fuel and Energy Ministry press office reports.
“In the course of the meeting, Ukrainian representatives confirmed the readiness to conclude a new agreement on steel mill production trade and met with support from the EC representatives related to the possibility of increase in quota on SA1 – by 30,000 tons, SA3 – by 20,000 tons and SB1 – by 2,000 tons export in 2006,” informs the report.
The parties agreed to continue consultations.
As a reminder, July 29, 2005 the Cabinet of Ukraine and the EU inked an agreement on some steel mill products trade for 2005-2006 provided that Ukraine would have at its disposal an export tax duty on iron-and-steel scrap in the amount of ?30 per ton.
The agreement provided for an increase in quota on export in case of the duty reduction and launch of operations by Ukrainian new service centers in the EU territory.
