Shmyhal welcomed the European Commission's decision to extend the complete abolition of tariffs on Ukrainian products until June 2025.

"We expect not only a swift approval of this initiative by all EU institutions but also believe it is important to anchor such a completely free trade regime in the association agreement itself.
