Canada, Ukraine to agree on joint film production

Canada has agreed to start to elaborate a joint film production agreement with Ukraine.

"There is a serious competition for the opportunity to sign a co-production agreement with Canada. I am glad that Canada has listened to our arguments in favor of the immediate start of negotiations with Ukraine. This means a better and more competitive film and television production for both countries," Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada Andriy Shevchenko said, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to him, Minister of Canadian Heritage Melanie Joly expressed her intention to start negotiations on this issue in the official letter. She suggested using "new agreement model" developed by Canada in course of talks with Ukraine.

Ambassador Shevchenko noted the parties should appoint the official negotiators to start to work on the document in the near future.
