Canada annually imports goods worth about $420 billion, opening great opportunities for Ukraine.

Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister of Ukraine Natalia Mykolska said this on the air of UA|TV channel.

“Canada is a huge market, both in terms of GDP and imports. Canada annually imports goods worth about $420 billion. If we divide this sum by the actual population of Canada, it turns out that every Canadian resident accounts for about $12,000 in imports per year. This means very large opportunities for us,” she said.

Mykolska added that Canada had opened 98% of its market for Ukrainian goods, so Ukrainian goods could be delivered there without payment of customs duties almost immediately.
