Groysman expects introduction of FTA with GUAM countries to bring positive results this year


The signing of protocols on the full implementation of the free trade area within the GUAM countries (Georgia, Ukraine, Armenia and Moldova) allows deepening the cooperation already this year.

Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman said this at the meeting of the heads of government of the member states in the Organization for Democracy and Economic Development – GUAM (Georgia, Ukraine, Armenia and Moldova) in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"Today we have signed a number of documents that will allow us to fully implement the free trade area within our states in 2017. This will have a positive impact on the development of our national economies and deepen our cooperation," Groysman said.

According to the Ukrainian PM, it is strategically important for the GUAM member states to develop the transport communication.

"We have agreed that we will improve the situation. Of course, the GUAM format is a very important format for interaction," the Prime Minister of Ukraine added.

He thanked his colleagues for supporting the initiative to hold a meeting between the GUAM member states.
