Chairman of the President Secretariat Oleg Rybachuk noted significant progress in Ukraine's movement toward the World Trade Organization at a Friday news briefing. "The signing of the bilateral agreement with the USA means significant progress" Rybachuk noted, having stressed that it "will surely promote our membership in the WTO".

Ukrainian delegation will visit the USA in order to continue negotiations in the nearest time. As Oleg Rybachuk stressed that Ukraine has not discussed with Russia the term of its accession to WTO, as it is technically impossible.

He said that he expects much of the December 1 Yushchenko-Blair Summit, on which Ukraine may gain the market economy status and visa-regime liberation.

As a reminder, Ukraine was repeated by Pascal Lami time and again that WTO timetable of negotiations would not provide Ukraine’s entry in it. But Oleg Rybachuk strongly believes in the opposite.
