In particular, the parties agreed to draft and sign an agreement on mutual reduction of the tariffs for sending parcels by 15 September. Therefore, the cost of postage between the two countries is expected to reduce in the future.

"It will now be possible to send and receive parcels at all branches of Poczta Polska and Ukrposhta... We agreed to design the parcel processing processes in a way that ensures that delivery times are significantly reduced. We are already working with our counterparts at Ukrzaliznytsia and, with the help of the Ministry of Infrastructure, we plan to deliver some parcels by rail to avoid wasting time at the border," Smilyanskyi said.
