Ukraine plans to sign free trade deals with Egypt and other states this month – official

Ukraine is planning to sign free trade agreements (FTA) with a number of countries, starting from Egypt to Morocco within this December, according to its deputy Minister of Economic Development, Trade, and Agriculture.

Taras Kachka said Ukraine also intends to start talks or resume negotiations on free trade agreements with several countries, including China and Britain, Ukrainian news outlet European Pravda reported on Tuesday.

Ukraine wants to commence negotiations on a revision of the agreement with Britain, which has not yet entered into force, Kachka added.

He also said Ukrainian diplomats would shortly begin negotiations with most North African countries.

“This December, we plan to formalise this in official statements or memoranda, starting from Egypt to Morocco. Also, Jordan, Vietnam and Indonesia are among our priorities,” Kachka said.

Ukraine is ready for the FTA with the leading trading partners such as China, the deputy minister noted.
