Germany/Ukraine as a market opportunity in Ecommerce
The prospects of EU-Ukraine Association for cross-border trade and e-commerce
Thank you to all sponsors, speakers and participants for such a successful event.
The deep and comprehensive free trade agreement (DCFT) ensures unlimited cross-border trade by lowering tariffs and trade barriers. Since January 1st 2016, the Ukrainian market with 43 million consumers is open for German retailers and manufacturers. In return, the European market with 500 million consumers is open for Ukrainian enterprises.
Due to the association agreement, the bilateral flow of goods between Germany and Ukraine is expected to increase rapidly. Even more so after the planned visa-liberalization this summer, enabling Ukrainian businesses to travel visa-free to Europe.Especially for the Ecommerce sector and cross-border trade this represents an enormous economic potential.
The Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany, His Excellency Mr. Andrij Melnyk, together with Europe’s largest Ecommerce association – Händlerbund, the Federal Association of small & medium Enterprises (BVMW) and the Eastern Europe Association of Germany Enterprises (Osteuropaverein) are cordially inviting interested German and Ukrainian companies to Berlin on September 1st.
