Based on the result of a special investigation on the import of cut roses, a special commission of the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture (MEDT) has taken the decision to impose a special duty for imported cut roses HS code 0603 11 00.

Following the decision, special measures will be applied for a period of 3 years by introducing a special duty in the amount of:
– from the date of application of special measures in the amount of 56%;
