Ukraine poultry union wants import meat tax

The duty would consist of a 13% markup for six months.

A board chairman of the Union of Poultry Farmers of Ukraine recently asked the Ukrainian government to re-impose the 13% extra import duty on meat to protect domestic poultry farms, according to an article from the Kyiv Post .

"The 13% markup for six months is normal, honest, fair and within [the rules of] the WTO," said the chairman, Oleksandr Bakumenko, at a news conference in Kyiv.

He proposed introducing minimum sanitary requirements on the quality of meat and limiting licenses given away by the Economy Ministry in order to protect domestic poultry farms.
