"Since the launch of free trade last year, we record the growth of investment between Canada and Ukraine and increase in activity of both large and small companies. The growth of trade leads to an increase in investments and vice versa, "Potichny said.
He added that a special event will be held to attract Canadian investors in Ukraine in the autumn.
"In October, the Canadian Government Project for Trade Facilitation with Ukraine (CUTIS) will hold a special event, during which it will present various interesting projects and seek investors in Canada. We hope that this will lead to even more investment, "the CUTIS President noted.
The Free Trade Agreement between Canada and Ukraine came into force on 1 August last year. Earlier, Ukraine informed Canada about completion of FTA ratification.
