Only 29m euros have been recorded as the value of trade exchanges with Ukraine.
The state of 42 million inhabitants has an interest in long-term cooperation with Albanian enterprises.Ukraine is interested in Albanian tourism, as it can offer directly, and not through intermediaries, the free trade of wheat, when it is the world's second exporter of this product, but also of sunflower seeds, which meets 45% of the world's need for this Plant.
The facts became known at the Economic Forum Albania - Ukraine, held on Friday in Tirana.
Alban Zusi, President of the Albanian Export Center, the main organizer of the forum told Albanian Radio Television that "Ukraine is a big market both as consumer of Albanian products exported or as a product supplier. On the other hand would also benefit the local customer because there would be products of the same quality but with lower prices because they would no longer be imported from intermediaries from other European countries."
What can be done better to increase this co-operation of mutual interest?
"A free trade agreement that would make the cooperation much more interesting for the Albanian businesses, but also for the Albanian consumer and for the Albanian producer," added Zusi.
18 Ukrainian companies working in Albania can be multiplied if offered mitigation policies.
Is expected the preparation of a free trade agreement and especially the involvement of the Albanian diaspora in Ukraine to give new impetus to investment and free trade./Oculus News
