“The common historical and cultural heritage of Ukraine and Austria, the aspiration for deepening of the economic and investment cooperation unite the interests of our states substantially,” Pfandler stated.
He positively estimated the bilateral cooperation of Kyiv and Vienna.
According to Pfandler, the Austrian investors express the interest to the Ukrainian market and the improvement of the business environment in the country is the prerequisite for it.
Zerkal and Austrian ambassador also positively estimated the holding of the Year of the Ukrainian culture in Austria and Austrian culture in Ukraine.
Zerkal had focused on the importance of the further support of Ukraine by Austria in the holding of the reforms, particularly, the practical assistance in the restoration and protection of the Carpathian forest.
Earlier Austrian authorities stated that staged lift of sanctions against Russia has to be connected to the resolution process of the situation in eastern Ukraine.
