The fourth consulate of Ukraine will be opened in the USA
The Ambassador of Ukraine announced the opening of a consulate in Houston, writes ZN.UA.
Ukraine plans to open a consulate general in Houston during 2021, Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States Volodymyr Yelchenko said.
“We continue to expand our presence in the United States to be closer and more responsive to the needs of our citizens and businesses. This year we will open a new Consulate General in Houston. This should have happened last year, but unfortunately, as a result of the pandemic, we had to postpone it, ”he said during an online discussion hosted by the US-Ukraine Business Council on Thursday, March 25.
In addition, Yelchenko noted that last year Ukraine managed to increase the export of goods to the United States, which reached almost $ 1 billion. The export of Ukraine's services also increased by 7,8% and reached $ 1,39 billion. According to him, a greater export of services demonstrates changes in the structure of the Ukrainian economy.
“We are becoming more focused on high-tech IT and telecommunications technologies, which today represent the bulk of our exports to the United States. The total export of Ukrainian IT grew by 20% in 2020, followed by promising expectations for this year, "he added, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
The diplomat stressed that, in close contact with the new American administration, the embassy is working on additional steps in all areas of US-Ukrainian bilateral relations.
“Among other priorities, special attention will be paid to new economic opportunities and further improvement of the business climate in Ukraine. I am confident that our joint efforts will increase bilateral trade, ”Yelchenko said.
Note that today Ukrainian consulates operate in New York, San Francisco and Chicago.
