Relations between Ukraine and Poland are developing successfully, in particular, in the economic sector, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Poland to Ukraine Jan Pieklo said.
“In most sectors the relations between Ukraine and Poland are good and very good, particularly with regard to cooperation in the economy. In recent years, the parties have recorded the constant growth of trade exchange between the countries,” the ambassador said.
Thus, in 2017 the total value of trade amounted to almost $6.2 billion (26% more than in 2016). The Ukrainian exports to Poland amounted to $2.7 billion (23.8% more than in 2016), but the Ukrainian imports from Poland amounted to more than $3.4 billion (28.2% more than in 2016).
