Ukraine’s exports to Canada were up 48.5% yoy through September, Andriy Shevchenko, Ukraine’s ambassador to Canada, tells Ukrinform. Canada lifted 98% of customs duties on Ukrainian goods on Aug. 1, 2017, the start of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement. One surprising growth export was apple juice. The ambassador said: “I deliberately cite this example to encourage Ukrainian look for new areas of growth.” Although the two populations are roughly the same – about 37 million – Canada’s economy is five times larger, when measured in purchasing parity terms.
