There are a lot of problems that officials create and contribute to the fact that the water transport of Ukraine was and remains uncompetitive in relation to road and rail modes of transport, says informational message NIBULON company.
Among other things, the company noted super-high port dues for ship calls to the ports of Nikolaev and Kherson.
"Just imagine these two ports - not only the most expensive in Ukraine, but also the most expensive in the world," NIBULON stressed.
The company also said that the development of Ukrainian shipping is hindered by the excessive tax burden on water transport, the creation of competitive advantages for ships with a foreign flag, and the unwillingness of officials to continue river navigation during favorable weather conditions.
“This is just a small part of the real problems that we and other Ukrainian companies have to face every day. Some of these draconian conditions, some people's deputies, officials are trying to consolidate in the anti-state draft law "On Inland Water Transport", audaciously ignoring the interests of the state of Ukraine, honest Ukrainian business and Ukrainian citizens, "NIBULON said.
