President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko met with Parliamentary Speaker of Ireland Rory O’Hanlon to discuss investment and economic cooperation between the two countries.

The President said the Irish Embassy would soon be opened in Ukraine to give an impetus to this cooperation and activate political contacts.

Touching on trade issues, Yushchenko stressed that it was important for entrepreneurs of the two countries to establish links with each other and exchange governmental delegations. The President said he hoped Micheal Martin, Irish Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, would visit Ukraine along with Irish businessmen in 2006 to develop cooperation.

The Head of State assured his vis-à-vis that the government spared no effort to create a transparent investment climate, President's press office reported.

He also thanked Ireland for supporting Ukraine’s intention to get a market economy status.

“At the same time we would like Dublin to support us to practically execute the Ukraine-EU Action Plan and adapt our legislation to European laws,” said Yushchenko.

In his turn, O’Hanlon assured the President that his country would support Ukraine’s EU aspirations. He also said Ireland was ready to enhance trade-economic cooperation with Ukraine.
