Ukraine and Poland will jointly develop the Gdansk-Black Sea transport corridor to increase trade, according to Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Vladyslav Kryklii.

He stated this at the Ukrainian-Polish Economic Forum in Odesa on Tuesday, October 13, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"To increase trade between Poland and Ukraine, we are launching cooperation on the development of the Gdansk-Black Sea transport corridor and a memorandum will be signed today between the [Ukrainian] Sea Ports Authority and the Port of Gdansk Authority," Kryklii said.

He added that Ukraine and Poland have a common ambitious goal for active development and it will be achieved much faster through the realization of common transit and infrastructure potential.

"Our priorities include the construction of a transport corridor between the Baltic and Black Seas, and a lot has already been done this year," Kryklii said.

He added that 6,000 kilometers of roads, including 4,000 kilometers of state roads, are being built in Ukraine as part of the implementation of the president's nationwide construction program and UAH 5 billion has been allocated for the construction of the Go Highway international transport corridor and more than 100 kilometers of roads under this project have already been built and repaired this year.

"The large-scale reconstruction of the M-05 Kyiv-Odesa highway will begin next year, and it is also part of the Go Highway project, which is a combination of our Baltic and Black Seas, a combination of Gdansk and the ports of Greater Odesa," Kryklii said.

He noted that Poland and Ukraine are strategic partners. He also invited Polish businesses to participate in investment projects in Ukraine.
