RUSSIA - The Russian Government issued a resolution at the end of last year covers changes to quotas and duties on imported beef, pork and poultry meat. This is a USDA Foreign Agricultural Service GAIN Report subtitled <em>Import Poultry and Meat Duties and Volumes Changed for 2009</em>, dated December 2008 but released last month.

The Russian Government issued a Resolution #918 on temporary import duties for certain varieties of beef, pork and poultry meat. Duties were sharply increased on imports of pork and poultry meat that exceed the tariff rate quotas in 2009, but lowered the duty on over quota beef imports.

Meat market experts worry that growth of over quota duties on pork and poultry in combination with reduction of poultry TRQ volume may result in an increase in the retail prices of meat and poultry in Russia and reduce its availability for consumers.
