How is the export customs procedure:

Export of goods from Ukraine

Today, Ukrainian goods are exported almost all over the world. The most significant number of services and interests have been sent from Ukraine to Poland in recent years. If we mainly export metals, wood, furniture, electrical machines, chemicals to the European Union, then the list of exports to the USA and China may surprise you.

The Chinese market is oversaturated with goods. It would seem that a country that produces such a quantity of goods, ahead of Ukraine in technologies for several years, cannot import goods from other countries. The opinion turned out to be false because, in the first quarter of 2019 alone, Ukraine exported a large number of goods to China, overtaking Europe and Russia.
