The European Commission is sure that issue on export duty with Ukraine will be agreed successfully soon and Ukraine will join the WTO in the near future that will contribute to negotiations on creation of free zone trade between Ukraine and the European Union. The statement of representative office of the European Commission to Ukraine said.

As of December 2007, “Ukrainian power and the European Commission carry out constructive search of mutually beneficial decision concerning rates of export duty. This decision will open the way to completion of multilateral process on accession to the WTO.”

As a reminder, in late November of the current year the EU made the last demand concerning Ukraine’s accession to the WTO. Kyiv must reconsider regulations of export duty. Ukraine stated on readiness not only to keep current rates of export duty but even to low them.

Because of disagreement on this issue, the schedule for Ukraine’s accession to the WTO is broken. So Ukraine will not manage to join the WTO this year as it was planned.
