President Poroshenko will visit Israel ‘in coming weeks’ to sign the Free Trade Agreement with Israel,

President Poroshenko will visit Israel ‘in coming weeks’ to sign the Free Trade Agreement with Israel, Ukrinform reports, citing an interview with Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin in Austria. On Wednesday in Kyiv the Cabinet of Ministers approved the document, the fruit of three years of talks. Called ‘an agreement with exceptions,’ the FTA is heavily weighted toward free trade of industrial products. Israel is to cancel import duties for 9.2% of agricultural products and about 80% of industrial products. Ukraine is to cancel import duties for 6.8% of agricultural products and about 70% of industrial products.
