"We face a number of ambitious and fundamental tasks, the successful implementation of which influence the possibility of functioning of the Ukrainian economy in a deep and comprehensive free trade area with the EU. First of all it is a question of adapting our legislation and conduct of the appropriate system reforms. As the first vice PM, head of the economic bloc of the government, I am directly involved in this process," Arbuzov noted.

Commenting on performing the requirements, set earlier by the EU for signing the Association Agreement, the first vice Prime Minister said that Ukraine has made significant progress on each of these criteria.
