Uralkali Doesn’t Pay Export Duties, CEO Baumgertner Says
OAO Uralkali (URKA), the world’s largest potash producer by output, doesn’t pay any export duties and doesn’t believe it should pay such tariffs, said Vladislav Baumgertner, the company’s chief executive officer.
The Russian mining industry is subject to “very competitive” taxation, he said at a conference in New York. “We feel very comfortable compared to our international partners.”
