Business environment in Ukraine

Ukraine’s business environment has faced challenges in recent years but there have been some positive steps taken (e.g. fiscal and banking sector reforms) that have begun to show positive signs. The country offers opportunities for Canadian exporters in key sectors including Agri-food, Energy, Power and ICT. In mid-2016, Canada and Ukraine signed a bilateral Free Trade Agreement which ensures improved market access, for example by eliminating tariffs across many export groups (including industrial products, fish and seafood), and provides more predictable conditions for trade and investment.
