Chambers of commerce and industry of Turkmenistan and Ukraine in a video conference meeting considered favorable options for logistics routes for the transportation of Turkmen and Ukrainian products, the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan (UIET) said in its Monday press release.

The online meeting gathered the heads of the CCIs of Turkmenistan Dovletgeldi Rejepov and Ukraine Gennady Chizhikov, the Ambassador of Ukraine to Turkmenistan Viktor Maiko, the Ambassador of Turkmenistan to Ukraine Toyly Atayev, Turkmen government officials, as well as the Business Council of the Ukraine’s CCI, regional chambers and Ukrainian businesses.

The meeting participants discussed the current state of trade-economic relations between Turkmenistan and Ukraine and the prospects for further partnership.
