In January-February 2023, the chair of the Ukrainian Reconstruction Fund Pavlo Kostyuk visited European countries to establish business relations of the charitable organization with foreign partners.
The key event of the trip was the participation in the business forum “Rapid Recovery of Ukraine” in Luxembourg, which discussed specific ways of helping Ukraine to recover after the war.
The forum gathered about 300 participants: potential international investors, bankers, officials, and top politicians.
Opening the event, the Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel noted that no country, no donor, and no international organization can help Ukraine alone. Therefore, it is worth considering the joint efforts, as well as the problems and opportunities associated with this task.
– According to the results of the personal conversations, I had on the sidelines of the forum, I can confirm that Ukraine has many reliable friends in Europe – emphasized Pavlo Kostyuk. – Investments in the reconstruction of the country are worth billions of dollars and create great opportunities for foreign investors, but they also require careful preparation and assistance in implementation.
Note that, in addition to Luxembourg, the chair of the fund also had a series of fruitful meetings in Belgium, Switzerland, and Germany with investors who are interested in the restoration of Ukraine.
