Ukraine pledges interest to carry out joint projects with Canada and deepen mutually beneficial cooperation. This statement was made by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during talks with Julie Payette, Governor General of Canada.
«I've been in Canada for several days and I am very impressed by the country and by the level of cooperation that we see», the Prime Minister emphasized.
In turn, the Governor General assured that Canada, where the Ukrainian diaspora is one of the largest communities in the world, will continue to support Ukraine.
The Head of Government briefed the Canadian side on the course of reforms and emphasized that relations with Canada at the political and most importantly at economic level are the topmost priorities. He stressed that the tendency towards increasing the volume of trade between Ukraine and Canada is optimistic. However, the potential of such growth has not yet been fully utilized.
«I am convinced that the Free Trade Agreement, which came into force on August 1, 2017, opens up additional opportunities for boosting our business activity. I hope that we will be able to strengthen cooperation on projects on reforming the civil service, decentralization, retrofitting of the law enforcement system, fighting corruption, deregulation, energy independence», underscored Volodymyr Groysman.
