The exports are on a record level now ... We will continue to work to provide Ukrainian entrepreneurs with the fullest access to European markets," Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal said at the Cabinet’s meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

As noted, Ukraine is actively working with European partners to make progress in signing the Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (ACAA).
