Deputy Minister of Development, Economics, Trade and Agriculture, Trade Representative of Ukraine Taras Kachka said that Ukraine plans to initiate agreements with Canada and the United States in the field of digital services.

He said that in Bavaria he spoke with representatives of Siemens, which supply medical equipment.

“I ask: how can our country be in the middle of this chain? In response: Ukraine already exists. All components of the equipment are manufactured in Germany, France, China and delivered directly from there. But at the same time, there is an“ IT ”component in Ukraine and several other countries, which not only serves, but also develops this equipment, "said Kachka.
