Implementation of the export strategy as a key document stipulating for the development of international trade of Ukraine will allow the country not just to expand the trading opportunities, but to include them in global production and supply chains as well. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the Government sitting.
"The total volume has grown by 20%, or it makes up $ 35 billion. We have two goals: first is to saturate the domestic market, and we are demonstrating progress in this direction, and second line is to grow exports," the Head of Government stressed.
He emphasized that the geography of supplies of Ukrainian products covers more than 160 countries, while goods range from agro-sector to the production of mining and metallurgical and machine building industries.
"Ukraine should be a major exporting country," urged Volodymyr Groysman.
The Prime Minister also announced that drafting of resolutions on the Export Credit Agency sees its final stage. "We have to provide financial support for the trade in products of Ukrainian origin. This is an essential instrument," the Head of Government stressed.
He once again drew attention to the fact that exports and the economy, namely economic recovery, remain part of the priority agenda for the Government in 2018.
