Ukraine wants to limit the import of cars, including cars of AutoVAZ

Ukraine wants to protect its internal car market from import. AutoVAZ could suffer, for which officials of Customs union has already interceded, wrote newspaper “Vedomosti”. 

Eurasian commission worries about the intention of Ukraine of the special protection measures introduction for imported passenger cars, written in the letter of Minister by trade of commission, Andrey Slepnev, to Minister of economic development and trade of Ukraine, Petr Poroshenko. This decision would be contrary to the agreement about special protection measures of WTO and agreements between Ukraine and state Customs Union, he wrote.

Mr. Slepnev offers to hold high-level consultations and “in any case to avoid of these measures introduction”. The press secretary of the first vice-premier of Ukraine, Artem Petrenko, doesn’t know about plans of Ministry of economic development and trade to increase customs duties for foreign cars. This idea was discussed in 2011 but then they refused it, he said.

The share of import in Ukrainian car market grows. It was 92,3% of production volume in 2008, the import exceeded the production by 42% in 2010 and in 2011 – by 95%, calculated the association “Ukravtoprom”. In the previous year the production of passenger cars increased by 28,4% to 97400 cars, the import - by 84,3% till almost 190000, thereby it was imported 39000 cars from Russia (the data of “Ukrstat” and “Ukravtoprom”). 

In case of special measures introduction – quotas or duties – Russian party will suffer most of all, said the director of department of internal market protection of Eurasian commission, Vladimir Ilichev: Ukraine is one of the main export markets for AutoVAZ. By the words of director of public relations of AutoVAZ, Igor Burenkov, the company plans to deliver 25 thousand cars and vehicle sets of Lada (for comparison, 35 thousand cars in Kazakhstan) in Ukraine this year. AutoVAZ delivers vehicle sets in Cherkassy plant “Bogdan motors”. Mr. Burenkov didn’t comment the offer of Ukrainian Ministry of economic development as the final decision was not taken yet.

Ukrainian authorities want to stimulate the development of their own car industry, noted the executive director of AUTOSTAT agency, Sergey Udalov: “But in addition to protective duties it should be created the complex of measures to support domestic production”. It is possible that Kiev insured from the growing production volumes in assembly plants of Russia, said the managing director of AG Capital, Aleksandr Agibalov. If export of ready cars to Ukraine would be unprofitable for AutoVAZ, then the company would increase deliveries of vehicle sets to its Ukrainian partner, he supposes.
