Kyiv: Swedish Ambassador to Ukraine Martin Hagstrom, opening the 6th Swedish-Ukrainian Business Forum, noted that Swedish companies perceive the Ukrainian market as very attractive, according to Front News International.

"It is very important for us that trade development is two-sided, and we are very pleased at this sixth Swedish-Ukrainian business forum to discuss not only Swedish exports to Ukraine, but also Ukrainian exports to Sweden," the ambassador said.

In 2016, exports from Sweden to Ukraine increased by 60%, Ukrainian exports to Sweden - by 21%.

In the first quarter of 2017, Swedish exports grew by 34%, the Ukrainian one remained at the level of the previous quarter.

"If you learn how to export to Sweden, you will learn how to export to any EU country, since there are general rules in the European market, this market is the largest in the world with 500 million consumers," Hagström added.

The sixth Swedish-Ukrainian business forum kicked off today in Kyiv.
