Ukraine, Germany aim to keep trade turnover at EUR 9.

Ukraine and Germany aim to maintain and even increase the trade turnover between the countries, which made up EUR 9.5 billion last year.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba stated this following online talks with German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"Today we have also discussed life after the virus, that is, how relationships will develop after the situation stabilizes. Together with our German counterpart, we are set to work on developing trade between Ukraine and Germany. Last year's turnover made up almost EUR 9.5 billion. We will work to ensure that despite the global economic crisis unfolding in our eyes, this volume at least not to decrease but, perhaps, even increase,” said Kuleba.

He added that the parties discussed new opportunities for trade and business between the two countries, and paid special attention to the energy sector, which has "a great prospect".
