Poland replaces Russia as top importer of Ukrainian goods as Kyiv goes global.

Poland was the number one export market for Ukrainian goods during the first quarter of 2019, displacing Russia from the top spot for the first time since Ukraine gained independence in 1991. Poland imported goods from Ukraine worth USD 818 million, almost 10% more than the USD 759 million in exports to traditional trading partner Russia over the same period. In a reflection of Ukraine’s increasingly global trading horizons, the country’s remaining top five export markets in January-March 2019 were Egypt (USD 652 million), China (USD 640 million), and Turkey (USD 638 million). Overall, Ukraine saw exports rise by 7% year-on-year in Q1 2019 to USD 12.3 billion.
