Russian government has extended preferential customs duties

By the end of this year, the Russian government has extended preferential customs duties applicable to fruits, vegetables and wine-making products supplied from Moldova. The decree on the extension of the validity of preferential duties posted on the government’s web resource.

It should be noted that the previous version of the document provided for the effect of preferential duties for Moldovan suppliers until June 30 of the current year. In the new document, this date was replaced on December 31. In all other respects, the government decree remained the same. As before, manufacturers will be able to supply vegetables, cherries, nectarines, pears, apples, cherries, peaches, apricots, quinces, plums, as well as natural wines made from grapes to the Russian Federation market duty free.

The government instructed the FCS to undertake a monthly monitoring of the supply of the goods specified in the order. In turn, the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Economic Development was entrusted with submitting to the government for consideration by September 20 of this year its proposals regarding the change in the validity period of preferential customs duties, if necessary.
