Stability of the Ukrainian economy and the Ukrainian business allows Ukraine expect for foreign investments.
This was emphasized at the Dragon Capital’s Ukraine Virtual Investor Conference by First Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yulia Svyrydenko.
“The combination of the status of a candidate for the EU membership and the Marshall Plan for our country will provide additional guarantees to investors, and an access of Ukrainian products to the markets of the EU and G7 countries will allow them to develop the sales channels”, said Yulia Svyrydenko.
The Minister of Economy also emphasized that the Government's practical goals aim at the creation of jobs in Ukraine so that people can return home as soon as possible. Therefore, any business that starts or resumes its activities in Ukraine is important.
This is especially important in the context of the large-scale recovery plan that the Government is currently developing. The first phase of recovery is expected to last about 3-9 months. During this period, businesses will resume operations, create jobs and vacancies lost during the war, and return to peacetime production of goods and services. Restoration of infrastructure and capital will take more time – up to 5-10 years.
“The economy will begin to grow at a faster rate than before the war. And this will be an advantage for investing in Ukraine. A wide range of opportunities will open up, which should be taken advantage of”, noted Yulia Svyrydenko.
According to her, during more than 100 days of war, the Ukrainian economy survived and adapted. The Ukrainian exporters continue to work despite the blockade of sea ports.
