“Today, the indomitable Ukrainian people are fighting for freedom and independence. But we should already think about what our future will be like. Despite everything, in order for Ukrainians to have a successful future, we all continue to work together in this direction. In particular, the Advantage Ukraine program invites foreign investors and companies with vision and courage to join us. We will match the best companies in the world with excellent opportunities for development. A determined business that sees the potential in our country will be able to help realize Ukraine’s economic potential and at the same time turn unused opportunities into advantages,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed the participants of the round table during his speech.
Yuliya Svyridenko emphasized that the Government, in the process of restoring Ukraine, is placing a strong bet on the work of business. He launched a number of grant programs, thanks to which many entrepreneurs began to revive their own business. More than 700 enterprises have been relocated from hot spots, more than 500 of them have already resumed work. Therefore, there are more than enough projects and investment opportunities already at this stage.
“A number of promising projects are ready for launch, but require investments. This is one of the key conditions for the success of the reconstruction of Ukraine. We have collected and continue to collect most of these projects on one platform. Today, here at the opening of trading on the New York Stock Exchange, we are announcing the launch of the campaign and the launch of the platform. We invite managers of leading global companies whose shares are listed on the stock exchange to join,” said Yulia Svyridenko at the platform’s presentation in New York.
