Ukraine’s various Free Trade Agreements are an important factor in bringing many new investors to Ukraine, as businesses can take advantage of the benefits of growing, processing and/or manufacturing in Ukraine and then transporting the goods to Europe and beyond.
A country’s ability to freely and fairly trade with partners around the world isn’t just about economic development – it is also about strengthening ties and alliances. Ukraine is proud of the list of Agreements it has concluded in the past few years – and looks forward to continuing to grow with new partners ahead.
Ukraine has been a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO) since 2008 and signed the European Union Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) in 2014.
In 2016, the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement was signed and is currently in the domestic implementation phase.
Additional trade agreements include the CIS Free Trade Agreement in 2012; the European Free Trade Association in 2012; and direct free trade agreements with Montenegro, Macedonia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan.
Negotiations of bilateral FTAs between Ukraine and Turkey and Israel are also under way
