Whilst the beef quota will remain unchanged at 560,000 tonnes, these fees can be modified over the years because they depend on the development of the process of accession of Russia to the World Trade Organization (WTO).

The cuts will see pork imports decrease by 14 per cent. The provision allowed will therefore be reduced from 500,000 to 430,000 tonnes.

Poultry imports will also decrease by six per cent.
