Canadian Ambassador to Ukraine: Kiev and Ottawa will sign free trade agreement this summer

Ukraine and Canada expect to complete all negotiations this summer for their free trade zone agreement. According to a UNIAN correspondent, Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Canadian Ambassador to Ukraine Roman Waschuk said this during a briefing.

"We are hoping that we will be able to do everything [to complete the negotiation process] by this summer,” the Ambassador said. He stressed that the two governments are doing everything to ensure that all procedures have been completed.

Negotiations on a free trade zone between Ukraine and Canada were launched in early 2015, and by mid-summer of the same year they reached the final stage. The agreement was signed and is currently going through a legal vetting procedure.
