Ukraine, China may cooperate in production of electric vehicles

Ukraine and China already implement a number of infrastructure projects and seek to expand this cooperation in the field of ports, world logistics and production of electric vehicles.

Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian said this during the II Ukraine Silk Road Forum, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We do not only talk about the future with China, we already make it happen. One of the largest Chinese companies carries out dredging operations in the Pivdenny port, another one won a tender to reconstruct a number of Ukrainian roads. We have a prospect for cooperation between Ukrposhta and Aliexpress," Omelian said.

He recalled that the efforts of the Government of Ukraine and the Government of China made it possible to launch the Southern Silk Road through the territories of China, Azerbaijan, Georgia and Ukraine.

"We have something to offer in the context of ports and world logistics. Production of electric vehicles is another direction we support and share a common vision with the Chinese government about. Ukraine has the largest lithium deposits in Europe and has every opportunity to launch the advanced technologies of production. I hope we will succeed in this with the help of our Chinese partners," the Ukrainian infrastructure minister said.
