Mingarelli: We should speed up implementation of EU-Ukraine FTA

Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine Hugues Mingarelli advocates speeding up the implementation of the EU-Ukraine free trade agreement.

"We [the EU] have the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement with Ukraine. And we should speed up the implementation of this agreement, which we hope will bring the Ukrainian economy, integrate it closer to the open market of the European Union" Mingarelli said at the Kyiv International Economic Forum, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

At the same time, he acknowledged that the international trade system was not perfect, it had gaps and imbalances that need to be mended. "But protectionism is not the answer. We think the answer is the modernization of the World Trade Organization through negotiations and strengthening the international trade system based on generally accepted rules," the Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine noted.

The Kyiv International Economic Forum is attended by numerous delegations of foreign businessmen, financiers and investors who discuss prospects of cooperation with Ukrainian enterprises.
