More taxes to protect the beef cattle production

Interfax Ukraina reported that the round table discussions devoted to meat and products issues held on May 21st revealed the intentions of the AIC Ministry to introduce the tax, which would serve the development of animal husbandry meaning support of domestic meat prices and animal breeding.

Yuriy Melnyk, the Livestock Marketing Department Chief of the AIC Ministry said that this tax is necessary as funds to subsidize the animal sector are scant.

Ukrainian Vice-Premier Kozachenko positively evaluated the initiative of the AIC Ministry regarding this tax imposition and believes that this measure should better the general climate on the livestock production and processing.
