‘The task number one is the modernization of the existing entry points. Although it is possible to open ‘Nyzhankovychi-Malhowice’ checkpoint near Przemyśl within two years. For this to happen, there is a decision of the mixed commission for cross-border and regional development, there are funds in local budgets, in particular in Podkarpackie Voivodeship for the preparation of design estimates,’ he claimed.

The countries also discuss the prospect of opening four more checkpoints. One in the Volyn region, two in Lviv, and one more in the Zakarpattia region, where the borders of Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia come together.
