KIEV: The Ukrainian central bank said on Monday it had signed an agreement with the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) to extend for three years a bilateral currency swap arrangement.

The maximum value of the swap line remains unchanged at 62 billion hryvnias (about $2.2 billion), or 15 billion of the Chinese Remnimbi, it said in a statement.

“Access to the funds received under the agreement will facilitate trade between Ukraine and China in the Remnimbi,” it said, adding that China is Ukraine’s second largest trade partner.
