Ukraine ratifies free trade with Uzbekistan

Ukrainian MPs have passed the bill on ratification of the Protocol on the implementation of the Free Trade Area Agreement of October 18, 2011 between the Parties and the Republic of Uzbekistan.

234 MPs voted for the bill, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to the Protocol, the Republic of Uzbekistan does not impose import and export duties on Ukraine.

Speaking from the Parliament’s rostrum, Deputy Economic Development and Trade Minister and Trade Representative of Ukraine Natalia Mykolska noted that the Protocol would contribute to countering Russian aggression with its ban on the export of Ukrainian goods.
