The foreign trade turnover of Ukraine fell by one-third for January 2015, but the government is not ready to work out a strategic plan to support exporting companies, the newspaper "Ukrainskaya Pravda" reported.
According to official Ukrainian foreign trade statistics for 2014, the volume of exports fell by 22%.
The latest data show that Ukrainian exports to the EU in January 2015 dropped by 31% compared with January 2014. The decrease of Ukrainian exports to CIS countries and Russia was even more apparent, reaching 54.9% and 60.3%, respectively.
Executive director of the European Business Association, Anna Derevyanko, says that export growth requires a stable and predictable economic policy of the government, which currently does not exist.
