Trade between Ukraine and the European Union has grown by 40 percent over the past three years, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wrote today. 

Much of the trade increase could be attributed to a free trade agreement between Ukraine and the EU.

Successful free trade with the EU has also become an impetus for Ukraine to develop and complete free trade agreements with other large trading states of the world, such as Canada, Israel, and Turkey.

“Our next priorities in the development of trade with the EU are strengthened customs cooperation, the conclusion of an agreement on conformity assessment and acceptance of industrial products, the adaptation of legislation in the field of sanitary and biosecurity measures,” Poroshenko said.
