President Volodymyr Zelensky said this during a video address at the 4th German-Ukrainian Business Forum on Friday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"Ukraine's strategic course towards European integration remains unchanged. We strive to synchronize and integrate our economy into the economic system of the European Union. Cooperation between Ukraine and Germany - the driving force of European integration - is of particular importance on this path," Zelensky said.
He added that the business forum provides a unique opportunity to develop promising areas of cooperation between Ukraine and Germany. “We are especially interested in cooperation in the areas of digitalization and IT, energy and energy efficiency, infrastructure and logistics, agricultural and aerospace industries,” the president noted.
Zelensky also believes that the holding of the German-Ukrainian Business Forum demonstrates the desire of the parties to develop and deepen the partnership, despite the difficult circumstances caused by the pandemic.
In addition, Zelensky thanked German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the German government for supporting Ukraine in the face of aggression from the Russian Federation.
