Trade and economic relations between Ukraine and Poland developed dynamically in 2019, and a visit of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland, Mateusz Morawiecki, to Ukraine would contribute to their further development.
Ukraine’s Ambassador to Poland Andriy Deshchytsia said this in an interview with Ukrinform.
“As for trade and economic relations, within the framework of Ukrainian-Polish cooperation, trade is constantly growing. In 2019, it amounted to about $7 billion, which is over 10% more than in 2018. However, we lack the growth of Polish investment in Ukraine. There is scope for action in the near future. To a certain extent, this is directly related to the growing dynamics of contacts at the government level. We hope that Polish investments in Ukraine will increase in 2020, and a visit of the Polish Prime Minister to Ukraine will contribute to the interest of Polish business in Ukraine,” Deshchytsia said.
According to the ambassador, there is an order of visits of heads of government, and the last was the visit of former Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman to the Economic Forum in Krynica, Poland in 2016.
“After that, there were no visits of Polish Prime Ministers to Ukraine. The situation needs to be corrected,” Deshchytsia said.
He expressed hope that a meeting of the Ukrainian-Polish intergovernmental commission on economic cooperation, which, as a rule, precedes the meeting of prime ministers, would take place soon.
