Canada sees launch of free trade with Ukraine as a priority

Tuesday, August 01, 2017 > 08:57:10


The launch of effective free trade with Ukraine is a priority for Canada's Ministry of International Trade, Marc-Andre Poirier, special assistant at the office of the Canadian minister of international trade, has told an Ukrinform correspondent.

"The free trade agreement with Ukraine is a priority for [Canadian Minister of International Trade Francois-Philippe] Champagne, and we are very pleased that it will come into force soon," Poirier said.

He added that the minister would promote Canadian-Ukrainian interests in his work.

The free trade agreement between Canada and Ukraine was signed on July 11 last year during a visit by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Kyiv. It enters into force on August 1 this year. After that, Canada will immediately cancel customs duties on 99.9% of Ukrainian imports. Ukraine, in turn, will also cancel 86% of customs duties on imports from Canada, bringing customs policy to parity within seven years.
