Kozhara: China ranked second largest trading partner of Ukraine

Kozhara: China ranked second largest trading partner of Ukraine


China is ranked second (after Russia) among individual trading partners of Ukraine, and the volume of trade keeps growing, foreign minister of Ukraine Leonid Kozhara said in interview with foreign media today.

"I remember how four years ago during a meeting with one of the Chinese investors, we dreamed of that trade turnover between Ukraine and China reached $ 5 billion. Now it has exceeded the level of $ 10 billion, and keeps growing. China has become the number two trading partner of Ukraine, after Russia," Kozhara said.

That is why, he said, the President of Ukraine had to take uneasy decision to leave the country to pay a visit to China, which had been prepared for more than a year.

Kozhara also stated that about 12 agreements are planned to be signed during the visit of Ukrainian President to China.
