KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 17 -- 

Ukraine has maintained consistent growth of its bilateral trade with Malaysia throughout 2021 despite the global economic slowdown in view of COVID-19, says Ukraine's ambassador to Malaysia, Olexander Nechytaylo.   

He said the trade between both countries has been growing since 2016, adding that Ukraine has increased the import and purchase of gloves and personal protective equipment (PPE) from Malaysia to more than six times now.

Ukraine also remains one of the main consumers of Malaysian palm oil within European countries. "We have witnessed consistent growth, usually five, seven and 10 per cent in our bilateral trade."

"Last year and this year we witnessed one per cent growth, and still consider it as positive despite the pandemic," he told Bernama in an interview. 

According to the State Statistics Service of Ukraine, Malaysia remains Ukraine’s third largest trading partner within ASEAN. 

The ambassador said this year also saw a Ukrainian company being the first company from the country to start supplying organic blueberries to Malaysia. 

Nechytaylo said that organic blueberries are competitive in the Malaysian market, adding a Malaysian company had signed a contract with the Ukrainian company to supply blueberries in May for a start. "Few shipments have already arrived in Malaysia in 2021. 

Next year we expect organic blueberries from Ukraine to be sold in most major retail chains in Malaysia," said the ambassador. 

He pointed out that Ukraine also remains the main supplier of sunflower oil where 60 per cent of all sunflower oil in the Malaysian market is of Ukraine origin, as well as, wheat, dried legumes like peas, and condensed milk and whey powder, that was supplied almost five times more this year compared to 2020.   

Diplomatic relations between the two countries was established on March 3, 1992, and Malaysia was among the first countries to recognise Ukraine's independence. -
