Canada to give Ukraine 19mn dollars for self-government projects
Several Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv, will receive the assistance.
The Association of Cities of Canada will allocate 19mn Canadian dollars (UAH 380.7mn at the NBU rate) to Ukrainian cities for the development of self-government.
The secretary of the Kyiv City Council Volodymyr Prokopiv said that the funds will be divided between several Ukrainian cities, including Kyiv.
"Cooperation concerns almost any sphere of municipal economy: from what seemed to be very small, to large, massive projects like the master plan of the capital," Prokopiv said as quoted by Interfax-Ukraine.
The Free Trade Agreement between Ukraine and Canada comes into force on 1 August.
