    The Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine (CEP) and the Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting (IER) invite for the public discussion “Evidence-based Policy Making – Economic Impact Assessments of Potential Free Trade Agreements of Ukraine” that will take place on November 18, 2021, from 15:00 to 17:00. 

    The presentation is based on the economic modelling of the impact of potential future free trade agreements (FTAs) between Ukraine and Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia. The study is conducted by the research team of the Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting and supported by the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine.
