Journal Article by Iryna Bogdanova in East/West:Journal of Ukrainian Studies (EWJUS) Vol. 8 (2), pp. 151-191 (2021).

Against this background, the negotiations of the Canada-Ukraine Free Trade Agreement were finalized and the agreement came into force on 1 August 2017. This article explores the positive impact of this agreement on bilateral trade flow between the states and describes its potential contribution to unfolding Ukraine’s trade potential.
