It would be difficult to overestimate the impact of rail transportation on the Ukrainian economy and industry. Therefore, any fluctuations of the railway tariffs can be very vulnerable for business.
Yesterday we gathered companies in the EBA walls for a meeting with the top management of Ukrzaliznytsia to discuss the declared tariffs escalation for freight transportation, as well as the feasibility, consequences and impact on business of such increase. Representatives of the Ministry of Infrastructure, Mineconomy and MPs also joined the meeting and had an opportunity to voice their opinion on tariff policy change of Ukrzaliznytsia.
We are pleased to start an open and constructive dialogue and sincerely hope to reach consensus on this extremely important issue for business.
