On January 1, 2021, the Agreement on political cooperation, free trade and strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United Kingdom came into force.
Our countries have confirmed their intentions to strengthen trade, investment and build supply chain. Free access to the British market received 98 % of Ukrainian products, in addition, unmitigated tariff quotas were also agreed.
Today we want to share with you the results of the trade for the first six months of this year. And they are extremely successful!
Ukrainian exports increased by 86 % and reached almost $ 500 million. Imports from the United Kingdom increased by 56 % and almost equal to Ukrainian exports – $ 486 million. The total trade ranking increased by 70 % and reached almost $ 1 billion. And this is without trade in services published later and traditionally not inferior to trade in goods.
We also compared this data to 2019, a doc. And also fixing significant growth: export + 52 %, import + 42 trade turnover + 47 47 %.
We do not stop there and urge Ukrainian exporters to use the preferential trade regime even more actively.
