Ukraine's investment needs combined with China's technological and financial capabilities will provide the countries with competitive advantages in world markets. Such assurance was aired during a meeting in Kyiv between Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Kistion and Director General of the Foreign Capital and Overseas Investment Department of the National Development and Reform Committee of the People's Republic of China, Wang Jianjun.
Volodymyr Kystion informed Mr Wang Jianjun about the reforms that have changed Ukraine over the past two years and improved the investment climate in the energy and infrastructure sectors of our country.
"China has something that Ukraine is lacking - investments and advanced technologies. If we combine our efforts, taking into account the capacity of Ukrainian ports and railways, we will be able to easily compete in world markets", stressed Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine and invited Chinese companies to set up their production facilities in the territory of our state, to launch joint production and export to third countries.
In turn, Wang Jianjun said that despite China's significant economic potential, the country needs import of oil, iron ore, corn and barley. "This time we brought to Ukraine only 30 Chinese companies, although about 100 investors expressed interest in cooperation. I think the next time, our delegation will be even bigger - the changes that have taken place in your country promote deepening partnership", he summed up.
