Participation in the online conference "Ukraine-Egypt"
On March 18, 2021, Dairy Global Experts specialists took part in the online conference "Ukraine-Egypt: Promising Areas of Interaction".
The conference aroused great interest among business representatives from Ukraine and Egypt. Almost two hundred entrepreneurs took part in the B2B forum.
“Egypt is Ukraine's largest trade partner in the African continent and the Middle East, and we highly appreciate it. To a certain extent, Egypt is the gateway for Ukrainian goods for the countries of Africa and the Middle East, ”said Hennadii Chyzhykov, President of the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Holding such a large-scale online event is aimed at enhancing trade between countries. The rate of trade in 2020 slowed down by half compared to the peak in 2019: trade between Egypt and Ukraine then reached $ 2.6 billion.
The main Ukrainian exports are: grain, ferrous metals, fats and oils, tobacco. Most of the imports from Egypt to Ukraine are fruits, mainly citrus fruits.
“For the further development of cooperation, we should intensify the work of our bilateral Business Council. The Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is also considering the possibility of appointing a representative in Egypt. We hope to agree on most of the issues during a business meeting in Egypt in May this year, ”H. Chyzhykov said.
Cooperation between Ukraine and Tunisia reaches a new level!
On March 17, 2021, the founding meeting of the Ukrainian part of the Ukrainian-Tunisian Business Council was held, which was attended by representatives of Dairy Global Experts and 33 business representatives.
“Tunisia is a stable market based on a logistics hub between Africa and the EU. The country is a member of the free trade association with the EU, which allows exporting goods of a wider range. It should be noted that food safety is one of the important accents in trade relations with Tunisia, ”said the Ambassador of Ukraine to Tunisia Volodymyr Khomanets.
Oleksiy Gavrilov was elected the Chairman of the Ukrainian part of the Ukrainian-Tunisian Business Council, who is the Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the group of companies "RAMBURS".
The parties noted that the main task of the Business Council is to establish an effective and mutually beneficial dialogue between the business communities of Ukraine and Tunisia, in particular through joint activities of the chambers of commerce and industry of the two countries.
In addition, it was noted that it is planned to hold the 4th Intergovernmental Ukrainian-Tunisian Commission in the second half of this year, where one of the important issues will be considered - the Agreement on the Preferential Trade Regime. Also, the Tunisian delegation is ready to visit Ukraine after the improvement of the epidemiological situation in both countries.
