The Canadian government begins to implement the Ukraine-Canada free trade agreement. The respective bill was submitted at the federal parliament. Christine Freeland, Canada’s minister of international trade, said this on Friday during her speech at the parliament.
“It was my honor to submit this document. The agreement serves another proof of Canada’s support of Ukraine’s independence, sovereignty and economic growth,’ Freeland said.
According to her, the implementation of the agreement will be in favor of the middle class in both countries.
The Ukraine-Canada free trade agreement was signed on July 11, during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s visit to Kyiv. When the agreement takes effect, Canada will cancel duties for 99.9 percent of Ukrainian imports. Ukraine will do the same for most of the Canadian imports.
