“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.
