Relations between Ukraine and Poland are developing successfully, in particular, in the economic sector.

Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Poland to Ukraine Jan Pieklo said this at a press conference in Ukrinform on Tuesday.

"In most sectors, the relations between Ukraine and Poland are good and very good, particularly with regard to cooperation in the economy. In recent years, the parties have recorded the constant growth of trade exchange between the countries," the ambassador said.

Thus, in 2017, the total value of trade amounted to almost $6.2 billion (26% more than in 2016). The Ukrainian exports to Poland amounted to $2.7 billion (23.8% more than in 2016), but the Ukrainian imports from Poland amounted to more than $3.4 billion (28.2% more than in 2016).

Poland is Ukraine's first export market in the European Union (ahead of Italy, Germany and the Netherlands) and the second largest supplier of goods from the EU after Germany, according to statistics provided by the embassy to Ukrinform.
