Vasyl Myroshnychenko, the CFC Consulting partner and the head of Ukrainian office of Ukrainian British City Club spoke up at the presentation of the analytical note “Audit of Ukrainian Foreign Policy: Ukraine -- Great Britain”. The presentation was held at the Ukrainian Crisis Media Centre. The note was written by Institute of World Policy.
Vasyl Myroshnychenko reminded that the commodity turnover between the countries is about 2 billion dollars nowadays, but potentially it could be larger, as well as British investments in Ukraine, which are also about 2 billion dollars. In particular, it is desirable to stimulate the export of goods with added value. He also agreed, we should begin to work on a mechanism of replacing the free trade zone, which will end by the UK's full exit from the EU. "I think that the Ukrainian government should begin to raise this issue for discussion with the British government. It is currently not relevant to Britain, because now they are concerned on how to structure Brexit, but I do not see the unpredictable circumstances which may stop FTA validity when Britain exits from the EU", - Vasyl Myroshnychenko said.
