Ukraine has been a project country since 1994, initially within the framework of the “German Advisory Group”. The country has a developed industrial sector. Since 2009, Ukraine has also been part of the EU’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) and has concluded a Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement (DCFTA) with the EU.

After economic instability and political turmoil following independence in the early 1990s, the country successfully implemented a series of far-reaching reforms, including a currency reform (1996) and the privatisation of industry and agriculture.

As the country moves closer to the European Single Market, new structural and economic policy issues arise, including industry, trade, law and regulation, private sector development as well as climate, energy and environment. The German Economic Team accompanies and advises the Ukrainian government on these challenges.
