The IAE reminded that the United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union on January 31, 2020. The EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) was signed on December 30, 2020. At the end of 2020, the Agreement on Political Cooperation, Free Trade, and Strategic Partnership between Ukraine and the United Kingdom was also signed, which came into force in early 2021. Therefore, Ukraine’s mutual trade with this country will be carried out and accounted for separately in the future, the IAE noted.
