The Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau summer plans to pay an official visit to Ukraine, reported Ukrinform citing several sources involved in the travel preparations.
The details of the visit are still being agreed upon, but most likely it is to start in July.
In Kiev, the parties plan to sign the Ukraine- Canada Free Trade Zone Agreement.
- By that time Ukraine- Canada Free Trade Zone Agreement should be proofread ensuring it is linguistically correct, legally effective and ready to be signed, told the source.
The Ukraine- Canada Free Trade Zone Agreement was initialed in July last year during the visit of the then Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Ottawa. This Agreement envisages a gradual (over 10 years) relative reduction of import duties on most product groups that should lead to a 98% cancellation fee.
This year Ukraine has been visited by Foreign Affairs Minister of Canada, Stéphane Dion and Defense Minister Harjit Sajjan. Moreover, Ukraine has become the first country in the Eastern Europe the Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister visited following his appointment.
