Reacting to news of a new Digital Trade Agreement with Ukraine, William Bain, Head of Trade Policy at the BCC, said:
“UK companies will be keen to assist in the reconstruction of Ukraine and the first priority is going to be the economy.
“To have a strong digital trade agreement in place from the get-go will provide a boost to e-commerce trade in both directions between our two countries.
“This agreement should allow businesses and consumers in Ukraine to more easily buy the products and services they need. E-commerce comprises a growing share of the UK’s net trade so we hope companies will get user friendly advice from the Government to make the most of today’s agreement.”
