The environmental assessment process also includes consultations with the public, provincial and territorial governments, as well as the non-governmental environmental assessment advisory group (EAAG), made up of stakeholders, including representatives from the business community, universities and non-governmental organizations. This analysis uses UN COMTRADE data, but statistics on merchandise trade between Ukraine and Canada vary widely among journalists. Several factors may contribute to the difference, including FCA versus FOB prices, which cover imports and exports; The transit gap between goods leaving the country of origin and entry into the country of destination; Exchange rate differences Re-export and transshipment; False statements for fraudulent purposes, etc. Most of the differences in trade data between Canada and Ukraine were observed for coal (HS2701) as well as for special tariff positions (HS99), vehicles (HS87), pharmaceutides (HS30), etc. (3). (3) Preferential tariff treatment under a free trade agreement under paragraph 1.1 may be refused or withdrawn from products in the following circumstances: the removal of tariffs under a CUFTA is expected to increase the presence of Canadian exporters in the Ukrainian market, particularly in areas where Ukraine applies higher tariffs. However, Canadian merchandise exports to Ukraine account for only a very small share of Canada`s total world exports. This would also be the case if a CUFTA created significant growth in trade. Therefore, a CUFTA would have a modest economic impact in Canada and the magnitude of the potential environmental impact resulting from increased exports to Ukraine should also be minimal and easily integrated into Canada`s existing environmental regime.
(a) establish a free trade area in accordance with the agreement; Canada will work to abolish tariffs on most of trade with Ukraine. In 2013, Ukraine had a maximum tariff (MFN) of 5.8%, an average non-agricultural tariff of 5.0% and an applied average agricultural tariff of 10.9%. About 98 per cent of Ukrainian products and 80 per cent of Canadian exports to Ukraine will not be subject to tariffs. Some tasks will be deleted immediately, others will expire over a period of three to seven years. Following the entry into force of CUFTA, 86% of Ukrainian imports from Canada have been exempt from tariffs and the remaining tariff benefits are expected to be imported by January 1, 2024. In the meantime, Canada immediately eliminated tariffs on 99.9% of imports from Ukraine, and Canada Tariff Finder was designed to help Canadian businesses, importers and exporters more easily find customs information for products with harmonized system codes.
