Ukraine and Hungary have signed a bilateral protocol on access to the market of goods and services in Geneva, a source in the Ukrainian Economy Ministry's department for public relations and European integration reported to RBC today. Earlier, Ukraine signed similar agreements with ten out of twenty two countries from the group of Ukraine's accession to the World Trade organization (WTO).
Ukraine is planning to sign the corresponding bilateral agreement with the EU in March during the visit of Ukraine's Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich to Brussels. According to the Economy Ministry, Ukraine is going to concentrate on negotiations with the USA and Australia for its soonest accession to the WTO.
Europe and Russia could come to an agreement on many issues if it had not been for such issues as Ukraine and Crimea.
