This year, the revision of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union, in particular trade annexes, began. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal on March 4 during a press conference on the occasion of A Year of the Government’s Activities.
"We have started work on the so-called industrial visa-free regime. What does this point mean in terms of a full and comprehensive free trade area? This means that quotas for certain Ukrainian goods on the European market will be minimized or abolished," said Denys Shmyhal.
According to the Prime Minister, currently, almost 14,000 Ukrainian entrepreneurs are present on the European market and the Government will work to increase this presence.
"It's an inevitable path we will make head. Europe will increasingly open its markets to Ukraine. And Ukrainian business must prepare for this," the Prime Minister said.
Denys Shmyhal added that Ukraine is negotiating trade liberalization with a number of countries, including Turkey and Canada.
"Negotiations on a free trade agreement with Turkey have turned a corner. We are also discussing changes in terms of expanding the free trade agreement with Canada, "the Prime Minister said.
