Prasolov noted a long tradition of Ukrainian-Bulgarian cooperation and assured that the meeting will contribute to the further development of bilateral relations.

We pay special attention to the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, including the creation of a deep and comprehensive free trade area with the European Union," Prasolov said.

He also pointed out that Bulgaria is the largest trade partner of the country in the Balkan region. Prasolov stressed that Ukraine is interested in further expansion of Ukrainian-Bulgarian trade and economic cooperation.

In particular, both sides need to actively develop industrial cooperation, mutual investment, inter-regional economic cooperation," Ukrainian economic development minister concluded.
