EU-Ukraine: enhanced bilateral cooperation and trade with agricultural products
Commissioner Dacian Cioloș held a meeting with Ukraine’s Minister of Agrarian Policy and Food, Ihor Shvaika to discuss ways to further develop bilateral cooperation and trade.
Speaking after the meeting, Commissioner Cioloș said: “We have held a lengthy discussion today on concrete measures to step up our cooperation for the benefit of Ukrainian farmers and for all those who live in Ukraine’s rural areas. The Minister is clearly committed to achieving tangible results and I am committed to help. A first step has already been taken in the past fortnight, by opening major new trade opportunities for Ukrainian producers exporting onto the EU market.”
A number of senior meetings have taken place in Brussels this week between members of the Commission and the Ukrainian Government.
