The Ukrainian League of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (ULIE) and the Spanish Confederation of Employers' Organizations (CEOE) have signed a cooperation agreement to set up the Spain-Ukraine Business Council.
The press service of the Export Support Center under the ULIE reported this on May 4.
The main goal of the signed agreement is to promote the development of partnership of entrepreneurs of Ukraine and Spain, as well as to expand opportunities for economic cooperation between the two countries' businesses.
According to the report, the facilitation of trade and investment will be implemented in the form of providing technical assistance in various spheres of partnership, taking into account the professional specifics of the companies of the two countries. Particular attention is given to the exchange of up-to-date information on the current economic situation and regulatory and legal aspects. In addition, business contacts will be supported by the exchange and dissemination of information on business proposals and exports of goods, as well as assistance in finding potential partners.
"The Spanish market is potentially very interesting for Ukrainian entrepreneurs, while the main articles of Ukrainian exports to Spain are farm produce, namely fodder grains and sunflower oil, but in the foreseeable future, our export-oriented commodities can be expanded at the expense of high value-added products," Coordinator of the Export Support Center under the ULIE Denys Krasnikov said.
According to him, Spanish investors are now interested in investing in the agrarian sector of Ukraine.
