“Poland considers that there is much greater potential for this cooperation. However, the Ukrainian side needs to implement certain reforms, especially when it comes to the fight against corruption, intellectual property rights or general protection of competition,” Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Economic Development, Labour and Technology of Poland Jarosław Gowin said at the beginning of his visit to Kyiv on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
He noted that the trade between the two countries had increased last year despite the pandemic.
During the visit, Gowin will meet with Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture Ihor Petrashko, and will take part in the plenary session of the Ukrainian-Polish Intergovernmental Commission on Economic Cooperation.
Ukraine-Poland trade and investment cooperation, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economic situation of both countries, obstacles to the development of Polish investment in Ukraine, as well as prospects for Ukraine-Poland economic cooperation will be the main topics of the talks.
As reported, at year-end 2020, Poland was among the three largest trading partners of Ukraine. The total Ukraine-Poland trade last year amounted to $7.36 billion.
