7. The Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine. Latvia is One of the Key Partners of Ukraine in the Sphere of Transport and Transit.

Ukraine and Latvia cooperate actively and develop joint transport projects since the mid-1990-ies. A number of legislative acts, approved by both states, prove that fact. The first intergovernmental agreements were concluded back on 23 May 1995, when the Governments of Ukraine and Latvia signed the Agreement on International Car Communications and Executive Protocol to it, as well as the Agreement on International Air Communications. On 26 February 1998 the Agreement on Trade Maritime Shipping and the Agreement on Cooperation in the Sphere of Railway Transport were signed. Therefore, cooperation between Ukraine and Latvia embraces all possible vectors of transport sector activities.

This year Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine has initiated amendments to the Agreement on International Car Communications in the part of introducing a non-permit system for all types of transportations. The relevant letter was sent to the Embassy of the Republic of Latvia in Ukraine.

As for the railway sphere, the Governments of both states are parties to multilateral agreements within the framework of Organization for Cooperation of Railways, for instance, the Agreement on International Cargo Transportations, International Passenger Communications etc.
