Canada and Ukraine are planning to sign an agreement on free trade zone during Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s visit to Ukraine on July 11-12, Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada Andriy Shevchenko has said in an interview with the Day newspaper.

"We have two concrete objectives and one the most important task. First, the signing of the FTA deal. A huge amount of work has been done. This is a historic agreement. In the next few years 98-99% tariffs will be removed in the trade between the two countries. It is an absolutely achievable goal, and we hope that nothing will impede the signing of the agreement during Trudeau’s visit," the diplomat said.
