Last October, the Syrian-Ukrainian Joint Governmental Committee held its 7th session in Kiev which discussed the rapidly developing economic relations and means of enhancing them, particularly the free trade zone agreement due to be signed between the two sides.

The two countries also signed a number of agreements in the cultural and agricultural domains and the protocol of the 7th Session. The Syrian-Ukrainian Businessmen Forum was also held.

The 6th Session of the Syrian-Ukrainian Governmental Committee was convened in October 2008 in Damascus in the presence of Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Turchinov.

During the session, eight agreements, memos of understanding and cooperation protocols were signed in the fields of industry, transport, housing, customs, justice and trade.
