Ehud Olmert, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor, and Ukraine Economy Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk on Sunday signed a declaration of intent to strengthen trade relations between the two countries. Under the agreement, the two countries also will consider entering negotiations for a free trade agreement. Olmert and Yatseniuk signed the pact as part of a two-day visit to Israel by a delegation that included almost 50 Ukrainian deputy ministers, government officials, industry leaders and the heads of economic organizations.

Three other agreements were also signed including one between Ahsra, an Israeli company that insures foreign-trade risk, and the Export-Import Bank of Ukraine.
