President’s Office preparing Zelensky’s Asian tour in H2 2021

A trip of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Asian countries is planned to be held in the second half of 2021, according to Deputy Head of the Ukrainian President’s Office, Diplomatic Advisor to the President Ihor Zhovkva.

“We are working on organizing the Asian tour of the President of Ukraine in the second half of 2021. There are many economic interests in Korea, Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore - these will be the main directions of the mentioned tour,” Zhovkva wrote in an article for the Dzerkalo Tyzhnia (Mirror Weekly) newspaper.

In addition, Zhovkva noted that in relations with China, the key task is to develop mutually beneficial trade and economic cooperation, in particular, to further increase the export of Ukrainian products to this country, expand the range of exported goods, and strengthen the position of Ukrainian agricultural producers in the Chinese market.

"Attracting the Chinese side to the implementation of certain infrastructure projects in Ukraine will remain an urgent task," he added.

Zhovkva also drew attention to the fact that "India should fully open up to Ukraine, since there are all the necessary prerequisites for this." He noted that Ukraine and India are actively establishing cooperation in certain projects.

As reported, in May 2020, the President's Office announced that Zelensky's Asian tour will take place after the quarantine restrictions are lifted.
