Ukraine’s movement towards Europe is becoming ever more practical. One of the aspects of this path is the increase of trade with the EU and new logistics on the western borders.
On 11 November 2022, the Government approved a resolution No. 1273 on expanding the water area of seaports on the Danube. It concerns the ports in Izmail, Reni and the port of Ust-Dunaysk. Over the past six months Ukraine has managed to increase the cargo turnover of these ports by more than 50 times – from 30 thousand tonnes per month to 1.7 million tonnes.
In addition, it will increase the safety of navigation on the Danube, in particular the control and maintenance of declared depths.By opening new border crossing points and expanding the water area of the Danube ports, Ukraine will be able to increase exports and strengthen economic stability.
