Polish business is concerned about the sharp increase in imports from Ukraine, primarily food.

This was announced during the "Europe-Ukraine" forum in Rzeszow (Poland) by the vice-president of the Ukrainian-Polish Chamber of Commerce Elzbieta Bodjo, European Pravda reports.

According to her, the Polish agrarian business is agitated by the negative balance in trade with Ukraine.

Moreover, Polish companies have already begun to raise the issue of the possibility of applying special measures in trade with Ukraine within the framework of WTO protective measures.

It bears reminding that the World Trade Organization allows the introduction of restrictions against imports in case its sharp increase constitutes a threat to the national industry.

According to State Statistics Service of Ukraine, according to the results of 2017, Ukrainian exports to Poland increased by 23.8%, amounting to $ 2.72 billion.
