ST PETERSBURG, November 20, 18:16 /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine intends to pay special attention to implementing the provisions of the CIS Free Trade Zone Agreement during Kiev’s chairmanship of the Commonwealth in 2014, Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov told a news conference on Wednesday.
The new conference also involved Russian and Belarusian premiers, Dmitry Medvedev and Mikhail Myasnikovich.
“This is very important. We’ll work and propose mechanisms that we’ve not been realised in full,” Azarov said.
He praised the provisions on free access to pipeline transport, gradual reduction and abolition of export duties. “It is necessary to prepare an agreement on free trade of services. This would make the CIS a unique platform,” the Ukrainian premier said.
The global economic crisis depressed economic growth and “Ukraine is not an exception, unfortunately. In the 10 months of 2013 GDP reaches 99.4 percent,” he said.
