The package was approved by the parliament last month.


Another law signed by Yushchenko dramatically reduced duties paid on raw leather and meat exported from Ukraine. Other changes include making Ukrainian law match WTO standards for trade item name, reference number, certificate of origin, and source of manufacture.
