EBA Logistics Committee



On December 21, 2016 Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (hereinafter - VRU) adopted the Law of Ukraine "On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2017", which supported the proposal of the EBA Logistics Committee - to exclude clause 8 of Final Provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2017 year".

Experts of the EBA Logistics Committee worked hard to achieve conservation of revenues volume to the State Budget of Ukraine from port (administrative) charge on the level of 2016 and to eliminate clause 8 of Final provisions of the Law of Ukraine "On the State Budget of Ukraine for 2017" until the adoption of Methodology for setting port authority tariffs.

The EBA does not support raising of the tariffs of port charges and stresses on the need to establish economically viable tariffs of port charges and transparent mechanism for their collection.

The EBA wants to express its sincere gratitude to the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, to the Chairman of the VRU and to all members of the business community who supported this important initiative. We hope for the development and adoption of the Methodology for setting port authority tariffs asap.
