A conference on the economic reconstruction of Ukraine after the Russian military invasion is being held in Japan, in which the Japanese and Ukrainian prime ministers, Fumio Kishida and Denis Shmigal, are participating.

Japan supported and continues to support Ukraine, Kishida noted at the forum.

He announced that Japan is negotiating with Ukraine to conclude a bilateral investment agreement, but did not reveal details. The two countries have already reached an agreement to avoid double taxation.

Japan has pledged to provide Ukraine with financial assistance in the amount of more than 10 billion dollars. Tokyo cannot provide arms and ammunition to Kiev, as the Asian country's legislation does not allow the export of weapons

During the conference in Tokyo, about 50 Japanese companies signed cooperation agreements with Ukrainian companies in the sector of agriculture, energy and construction and maintenance of infrastructure facilities.
