Ukraine considers the possibility of concluding a separate agreement
with Great Britain on the Free Trade Area due to the official London's decision
to withdraw from the European Union and to shape its own trade policy. This was
stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on the outcomes of the meeting with Prime Minister
of Great Britain Theresa May. The meeting was held as a part of the Prime
Minister’s official visit to the United Kingdom of Great Britain.
«We addressed the issues of deepening economic cooperation. If we look
at mutual trade - for a year now we have trade flows to the tune of USD 2
billion, but the potential can be USD 3.5 billion. Hence, taking account of Brexit, we need to talk about the basics of our economic
cooperation. I brought up a point and I found support to start consultations on
the formation of the Free Trade Agreement (further - FTA) with Great Britain»,
stressed the Prime Minister.
recalled that the FTA is in force between Ukraine and the EU, Ukraine-Canada
Free Trade Agreement enters force on September 1 and negotiations are being held on
concluding the abovementioned Agreement with Turkey and Israel.
