Ukraine will license applications for export to the EU of 4 agricultural crops
Ukraine has developed a procedure for verifying the export of 4 agricultural crops in accordance with the decision of the European Commission, and does not export agricultural products to 5 border countries without their approval.
This was announced by the Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food of Ukraine, Mykola Solskyi.
“We are introducing an internal procedure for verifying the export of 4 crops (corn, rapeseed, sunflower, wheat) to 5 EU countries. This procedure provides for the issuance of a license by the Ukrainian Government within 30 days from the date of receipt of the export application. The relevant resolution of the Government has already been adopted, and therefore export to 5 countries without their approval is no longer possible. During these 30 days, Ukraine informs the European Commission and the relevant country about the receipt of the export application,” stressed Mykola Solskyi.
He emphasized that the mechanism, when exports do not take place without the consent of the neighboring country, is as constructive and understandable as possible, and takes into account the interests of all parties.
Mykola Solskyi also noted that Ukraine has sent proposals to neighboring countries on how such a mechanism will operate and is waiting for answers and possible options for solutions. Today, the official answer came from Romania.
