According to her, Ukraine will lift only 80% of such duties. Correspondingly, our producers will have wider access to the Canadian market.

"We are very interested in exporting finished food products to Canada including sunflower oil, beer, alcoholic and soft drinks, confectionery and many standard agricultural commodities, which we traditionally export," Mykolska said.

The deputy minister said the Ukrainian diaspora in Canada had contributed a great deal to the process.
