In the framework of the so-called "double profit" agreements between the EU and candidate countries, the European Commission adopted today [Friday] a proposal for a Council Regulation in view of the additional liberalisation of agricultural trade with Lithuania. The proposal foresees a total liberalisation of most ad valorem duties (for example for fresh and prepared fruit and vegetables, juices and processed meat). The proposal also includes "double-profit agreements", i.e. the removal of export refunds and the elimination within tariff quotas of the import duties for wheat, rye and oats, beef and veal, sheep meat, dairy products and molasses.
