Republic of Moldova cancels the imposed earlier restrictions on the supply of meat products to the country and cement from Ukraine from 1 January 2017. In particular: milk and cream for 10%, other dairy products for 15%, butter and cheese from 15% to 20% plus € 500 for 1 ton. The meat products were imported with the payment of an additional 15%.
An agreement on this was reached in November 2016 during a meeting of the Moldovan-Ukrainian intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation in Chisinau.
Vice Prime Minister of Moldova, Minister of Economy, Octavian Kalmyk, has assured the Ukrainian side that "Moldova will not continue the limit mode of the supply of Ukrainian meat and dairy products and cement from 1 January 2017".
The head of the Economy Ministry said that Moldova would find other measures to protect domestic producers of meat and dairy products.
