Ukraine joins Trans-European Transport Networks
Kyiv's accession to the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T) will help increase the competitiveness of Ukraine's transport corridors, UkrAgroConsult reported citing the Ukrainian foreign ministry's report.
"One of the important practical results of the Eastern Partnership summit in Brussels was the signing by Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin and EU High Representative Federica Mogherini of the High Level Understanding on TEN-T Core Network Extension Maps to Ukraine," the report says, according to UkrAgroConsult.
This will help increase the competitiveness of Ukraine's transport corridors, improve logistics, as well as simplify the formalities in the field of transport between Ukraine and the EU.
