Ukraine is growing. Come see why.

Ukrainian Week in London - October 8 -14, 2018

Presenting Today’s Ukraine

Ukraine is a world leader in Agriculture (with 40 per cent. of the world’s best soil – “chornozem” - the famous black earth), IT Outsourcing and Manufacturing (including missiles for satellite launches). Its economy is growing as it integrates into Europe and reaches global markets. The British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (BUCC), with the Council of British Chambers of Commerce in Europe (COBCOE), is holding Ukrainian Week in London on October 8 -14, 2018, together with the Atlantic Council (U.S.), the National Investment Council of Ukraine, the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) and other leading U.K. and Ukrainian institutions. Ukrainian Week’s lead sponsors are the industrialist Yuriy Kosyuk, the founder of MHP, Ukraine’s largest agro-industrial group, and SoftServe, Ukraine’s largest IT software developer. It involves the participation of leading U.K. and Ukrainian government officials and business leaders, and is designed for British and Ukrainian businesses to explore opportunities for partnership and development.

The Post-Brexit Benefit for the U.K. from Trading with Ukraine:

Ukrainian Week on October 9 also covers how after Brexit, as one of the world’s largest net importers of food, the U.K. can significantly benefit from a new trade treaty with Ukraine, the world’s second largest net grain exporter (wheat, corn and barley), by lower U.K. food costs and cheaper high quality feed for the U.K. meat and dairy farmers that are 2/3rds of U.K. agriculture, improving the U.K.’s balance of payments.
