Lithuanian leather processors will be able to import around 1,000 tons of hides duty-free from Ukraine during the period from early October to the end of this year, according to Baltic Business News. This quota, allocated to Lithuanian leather processors Siauliai Stumbras and TDL Oda, was agreed upon at bilateral talks in Yalta in Ukraine at the end of September. Ukraine decided to restrict duty-free hides’ exports to Lithuania as of March 1 this year after establishing that Lithuanian companies had been re-exporting the hides.
