Australian Ukrainian relations have been strengthened with the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organizations (AFUO) formally being registered in Ukraine, and the opening an AFUO office at the Ukraine Australia House, AFUO Chairman Stefan Romaniw reported to The Action Ukraine Report today in Kiev.
This move will allow for a more direct presence of Australia’s Ukrainian community in Ukraine. The AFUO and Australian Ukraine House have now embarked on a further program of cooperation.
Planned activities will now incorporate: (1) Business links and development; (2) Education programs; (3) Tourism; and (4) Promotions and assistance with migration programs to Australia.
“Ukraine- Australia House is now the official Austrade representative in Ukraine. This is a positive move,“ Mr. Romaniw explained.
“In November this year an exhibition English language courses is being hosted by Austrade in Kiev and being organized by UAH. We continue negotiations regards the Ukraine Business Forum in Australia planned for November 2005 “Mr. Romaniw said
“All these are indicators that relations are growing. They would grow even faster if there was an Australian diplomatic post in Kiev. That will be the topic of discussing with the Australian Government upon my return to Australia next week” Mr. Romaniw said
“It is time to lift the Australian presence in Ukraine as Ukraine becomes strategically more important” Mr. Romaniw told AUR.
