The Interdepartmental Commission on International Trade of Ukraine adopted a decision on May 21 to impose anti-dumping duties on import of cement clinkers and Portland cement from Russia, Belarus, and Moldova reports the Press-service of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (MEDT).
Anti-dumping duties are imposed in the amount of 114.95% for goods from Russia, 57.03% for the products from Belarus and 94.46% for the goods from Moldova. The duties will be in effect for five years.
The ministry noted that the measures are introduced due to the dumping imports from these countries during 2015 - 2018. During this time, the shares of import of cement clinkers and Portland cement from these countries were growing steadily.
Earlier, the Ukrainian government imposed an embargo on the import of Russian Portland cement, alumina, slag, sulfate-resistant cement, and similar hydraulic types of cement.
