An evaluation mission from the EU will arrive in Ukraine in order to assess the readiness of Ukraine's infrastructure and legislation before the negotiations on the industrial visa waiver begin. Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk announced this on his Telegram page after meeting with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell.
It is noted that the "industrial visa waiver" i.e. the Agreement on Conformity Assessment and Acceptance of Industrial Products (ACAA Agreement) is among the top priorities.
"We expect the previous EU evaluation mission to visit Ukraine and assess the readiness of its infrastructure and legislation before the talks start," Honcharuk said.
Ukraine’s last task was to apply the law on reducing the pressure put on business by market surveillance authorities in order to begin negotiations. Parliament did it back in December.
As we reported earlier, the sixth meeting of the EU-Ukraine Association Council has ended in Brussels, resulting in a common statement. The text of the document is available on the website of Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers.
"The parties (Ukraine and the EU – 112 international.) have discussed a number of important issues and adopted a common statement," the statement said.
