Export of Ukrainian goods and services to the European Union countries amounted to 35.7% in January-September, Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister of Ukraine Natalia Mykolska said.
“We see a trend that the EU actually remains our main trading partner, and our exports to the European Union grow. The goods constitute the bulk of exports (more than 85%), while the services amount to only 15%. The growth of exports to the EU testifies to the fact that the FTA agreement is effective”, she said.
Mykolska added that the export of value-added products started to increase gradually.
The EU-Ukraine Free Trade Area Agreement came into effect on January 1, 2016. (Ukrinform/Business World Magazine)
