Ukraine, Czech Republic planning to hold meeting of joint commission on cooperation this year

Ukraine and the Czech Republic are planning to hold a meeting of the joint commission on economic, industrial, scientific and technical cooperation until the end of the current year.

This issue was discussed during a meeting between Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Czech Republic to Ukraine Radek Matula, the Government portal reports.

“The parties have agreed that the priority is the implementation of projects in infrastructure, energy, transport and economy spheres,” reads the report.

Olha Stefanishyna noted that Ukraine and the Czech Republic in 2019 reached a record level of trade turnover in the history of bilateral relations. Last year, trade in goods and services increased by 9.3%, up to $ 2,238.2 million. According to her, it is a good foundation for further growth, which is especially important in view of influence of the coronavirus crisis on the economy.

She also backed the initiative of the Czech side to add a regional dimension to the activities of the intergovernmental commission to intensify the cooperation of the Czech Republic with Ukrainian regions.

In turn, the Ambassador noted that the Czech Republic seeks to expand economic cooperation and increase the number of companies operating in Ukraine.
