Free Trade Agreement with Canada expected to be ratified in spring – Ambassador


Ukraine expects the Free Trade Agreement with Canada to be finally adopted in spring.

Ukrainian Ambassador to Canada Andriy Shevchenko said this to an Ukrinform correspondent, commenting on the start of a new session of the Federal Parliament of Canada.

"Completion of the Ukraine-Canada Free Trade Agreement ratification should become an important event of this session. This document has successfully passed two readings in the Lower House of the Parliament and is now being considered in the committees. We expect that the final vote in the Lower House will take place in spring," Shevchenko said.

The Ambassador added that after the agreement was endorsed by the Lower House of the Parliament, it had yet to be ratified in the Senate and be signed by the Governor General.
