EU customs visa-free: Verkhovna Rada ratifies convention on joint transit, simplifying trade
The Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's Parliament) has taken the last step on the path toward visa-free customs and approved two ratifications
Ukrainian People's Deputy Yaroslav Zhelezniak wrote about this on Telegram.
Ukrainian People's Deputies voted for two bills:
On the accession of Ukraine to the Convention on simplification of formalities in trade in goods (№0165);
On the accession of Ukraine to the Convention on the common transit procedure (№0166).
Both bills were voted on as a whole and received more than 270 votes.
'Customs visa-free' means faster movement of goods between the countries of the European region, less bureaucracy at the customs itself, fewer opportunities for abuse, and exchange of data with neighboring customs offices in real time.
