Trends in activities of enterprises with foreign investment in Dnipropetrovsk region

For the last two years the investment activity of the enterprises of the region demonstrates stable positive dynamics.

During this period, 45 enterprises with foreign investment from 28 countries began their activities in the region. More than half of the enterprises represent the service sector, namely: real estate agencies, IT, education and logistics companies. The second place is occupied by trade and industry sectors.

Among the newly created ones, the Austrian company Marzek Dnipropak LLC, a manufacturer of labels and packaging for food products, which started its activities in the region in 2019, deserves special attention. It is the second company of the world-famous Austrian company Marzek Etiketten + packaging Gmbh in the region. Marzek Group LLC has been operating in the region since 2009, providing Eastern Europe with high-quality sheet, roll and heat-shrinkable labels, as well as other types of flexible packaging in accordance with the highest international quality standard.

One of the key factors of business activity is the optimization of administrative management. There is a tendency to re-register enterprises between regions and cities of Ukraine. For the period of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, 96 enterprises with foreign investments were re-registered to Dnipropetrovsk region, and 21 enterprises of the region moved their registration to Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv and Zaporizhia. These are companies of trade, industry, services and construction sectors. An interesting fact is that most of the companies re-registered to Dnipropetrovsk region are 34 enterprises with Azerbaijani investments.

Ukrainian residents became the owners of 39 companies with foreign investment, mainly in industry, agriculture and trade sectors, which allowed them to obtain the status of Ukrainian enterprises. In turn, 31 companies in services, industry and trade sectors, through the entry of foreign capital, acquired the status of “enterprise with foreign investment”.

 Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Kazakhstan, China, Macedonia and the Syrian Arab Republic became new investors of Dnipropetrovsk region last year.
