KIEV, November 14, 0:56 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich on Wednesday ordered Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov to take measures to harmonize customs procedures with Russia with an eye of increasing export and import operations, the press service of the Ukrainian head of state reported after Yanukovich’s Tuesday meeting with leaders of the Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and the Federation of Trade Unions.
In order to promote cooperation with Russia and boost Ukraine’s trade with Russia and other member states of the Customs Union [of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan], Yanukovich also ordered to “take an inventory of Ukrainian-Russian agreements in the trade and economic area.”
Apart from that, according to the press service, the Ukrainian president ordered to take measures to prepare agreements with the Customs Union member states on mutual recognition of the results of product quality checks. He suggested that the Ukrainian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs and the Federation of Trade Unions should take part in the regular “analysis of risks of negative impacts on Ukrainian businesses from the Customs Union’s technical regulations, standards and procedures.”
Azarov was also instructed to draft proposals on stimulating Ukrainian businesses to take part in projects aiming to replace gas with domestically produced coal, and also proposals on attracting foreign investors in long-term investment projects in the aircraft-building, automotive, instrument-making and agricultural machine-building sectors to enhance the competitive edge of Ukrainian products.
