Speaker calls on MPs to consider WTO draft laws on Thursday
Ukraine is due to ratify the WTO protocol by July 4
Verkhovna Rada Speaker Arseniy Yatseniuk proposes MPs to consider draft laws on WTO on Thursday.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, he claimed this at a sitting of the parliament’s Conciliatory Council today.
A.Yatseniuk pointed out that, presently, the parliament has received 2 out of 10 these draft laws. None of them has yet been considered by profile committees, because they were submitted as early as on Friday.
A.Yatseniuk recalled that, in line with earlier adopted decree, the parliament considers WTO draft laws without making additional decisions on putting them on agenda.
At present the Verkhovna Rada is waiting for remaining draft laws on this topic.
As UNIAN reported earlier, on February 5, President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko and World Trade Organization director general Pascal Lami signed the protocol on Ukraine’s joining WTO. Ukraine is due to ratify this protocol by July 4, 2008. Besides, Ukraine is also due to adopt 10 draft laws.
