We will remind, Ukraine and Israel held talks on the introduction of a free trade zone for several years, but in the summer of 2013 they were discontinued. In September 2015, Kiev and tel Aviv resumed its discussion. Announced that the agreement will be signed in the first half of 2016, but this did not happen. In July this year, the parties held a third round of talks, which allowed the two countries to reach the final stage of discussion of conditions for the building of a free trade zone.
