According to the European Commission, as of the beginning of July 2017, Ukraine has chosen a quota for duty-free exports of barley, barley flour and granules and closed the main quota for the second quarter of the year on chicken.
At present, the quotas for duty-free exports have been fully utilized for 9 groups of goods: natural honey, sugar, cereals and flour, processed tomatoes, grape and apple juices, chicken and, in the group of cereals - wheat, corn and barley. The quota for the malt and wheat gluten is almost used (98%). Compared to the last year, the dynamics of closing the quotas significantly accelerated.
