Rebuilding Ukraine: The President Zelenskyy met with the Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs of Denmark


The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with the Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs of Denmark Morten Bødskov, who is currently visiting our country.

The Head of State thanked the Government and the people of Denmark for supporting Ukraine since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion and noted the importance of the bilateral Security Agreement signed during the recent visit of the Prime Minister of Denmark Mette Frederiksen to Ukraine. The President also expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome extended to the First Lady Olena Zelenska during her visit to Denmark last week.

The Head of State noted the effectiveness of Danish patronage of the reconstruction of the Mykolaiv region and expressed hope for help in finding additional air defense systems for the region.

“The regions are attacked daily by missiles, drones, and artillery. The Mykolaiv region is one of those in urgent need of assistance,” Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.

The Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs of Denmark outlined the opportunities for strengthening cooperation between the two countries and announced the decision of the Danish Government to allocate additional funds to the Ukraine scheme of the Export and Investment Fund of Denmark.

The scheme fully covers the risks for Danish exporters and investors and provides financing to Ukrainian private companies and state institutions. The Danish Government will allocate almost €380 million more for this purpose. These funds will be used to restore critical infrastructure and build wind farms.

Special attention was paid to the prospects of the expansion of Danish business and the attraction of new investments to Ukraine.

“It is important that Mr. Minister is accompanied by the heads of Danish companies, which are the largest investors in Ukraine’s economy. Your activity in the Ukrainian market is impressive. With your investments you set an example for other partners and investors,” the President noted.
