Ukraine and Estonia have a strategic partnership based on enduring friendship, strong political dialogue, commitment to democratic values, and prospects of joint implementation of projects in the most promising sectors of the economy today. Recently, the Prime Ministers of Ukraine and Estonia signed an Intergovernmental Agreement on Technical and Financial Cooperation. The document will apply to all technical and financial assistance programs and projects implemented in Ukraine and financed in whole or in part by the Republic of Estonia.

💬“A genuine watershed moment in the relationship between both countries became the active support of Estonia in Ukraine’s stalwart will to move towards the eurointergation and defend European values. Ukraine and Estonia have truly friendly relations and this is a good basis for the intensification of bilateral trade, economic and investment relations. We trust each other and we believe in the great potential of our cooperation,” pointed up Mariana Betsa, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine in the Republic of Estonia.

We are grateful to all our Estonian partners, in particular, the Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry as well as the Embassy of Ukraine in Estonia for organizing this important event that serves as an excellent platform for enhancing further economic cooperation between both countries in the context of rising global challenges.
