Prime Ministers of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman and of Greece Alexis
Tsipras agreed to resume work of intergovernmental commission
on trade-economic cooperation aimed to enhance collaboration between the
countries in the economic sphere. Such were the results of negotiations of
Prime Ministers of Ukraine and the Hellenic Republic on Wednesday in Kyiv.
Among the topics of the talks of the two PMs were economic partnership
issues, said Volodymyr Groysman during a conversation with journalists
following the meeting.
"There are a number of opinions and proposals made by
my counterpart, from the point of view of a meeting of intergovernmental
Commission at the level of which it will be possible to discuss the state of
our bilateral cooperation and to determine those areas that will enable us to
develop among others our economic collaboration," he stressed.
In turn, Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic Alexis Tsipras noted that Greece is interested in deepening partnership
between the two countries.
Greece, in particular, is motivated to develop cooperation
with the Black Sea areas of Ukraine as a result of its historical, cultural and
economic ties with these regions, emphasized Alexis Tsipras.
"Our two countries benefit from very close relations, which are based on those shared things connected with our
shared history, religion, attitudes. We are very keen on finding those new
aspects in the relations between our two countries that would lead to the
improvement of the economic situation in our countries", said the Head of
the Greek Government.
Tomorrow in Kyiv will open the Ukrainian-Greek business
forum. "We believe that it will become an impetus for strengthening our partnership
in the economic domain", said Alexis Tsipras.
