On March the 17th, the Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen paid ControlPay Kyiv an official visit during her trade mission to Ukraine .
‘There is huge potential in Ukraine for Dutch businesses and investments,’ Ms Ploumen explained. ‘In fact there are already 320 Dutch businesses active in the country. We hope this visit will open the way for new contracts and allow us to expand on existing ones. That is why the association agreement is so important: it will speed economic and political reforms and help remove barriers, thus making trade even easier.’
