EU EC Approves Additional Market Preferences for Kiev
The European Commission has approved additional market access preferences for Kiev, the press service of the Ukrainian Cabinet said in a statement on Friday.
The statement comes following the meeting between EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malstrom and Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman that was held Thursday in Kiev.
"European Commissioner for Trade Cecilia Malmstrom announced the decision of the European Commission to improve access to the European market of some positions of Ukrainian goods in addition to a deep and comprehensive free trade area for three years,” the statement said.
In July, Groysman said that the additional trade preferences that the Commission was considering at the time concerned critical product categories, such as poultry, agricultural products of animal origin, flour, fruit juices, as well as electrical goods and aluminum products.
