Ukraine finalized WTO accession negotiations and concluded the Working Party report in early 2008, but has not yet adopted (at the time this report was drafted) the final accession package. U.S. exporters will continue to face the same non-transparent import regime until the WTO accession package is adopted and implemented. The vast majority of sub-legislative regulations have not been brought into compliance with WTO norms, standards and practices.
