    Ministry of Economy of Ukraine, posted 08 November 2022 11:24

    In two months since the launch of the Advantage Ukraine investment platform over 370 requests have been received, according to the operational data of the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine.

    In particular, more than a hundred requests have been received from strategic and portfolio investors from the United States, Great Britain, Germany, Denmark, Belgium, the Republic of Korea and others.

    Within the framework of the Advantage Ukraine initiative, investors are primarily interested in such sectors of Ukraine’s economy as innovation and technology, agriculture, mining, infrastructure, industrial production and logistics. There are also many requests for projects in the energy and defense sectors.

    “To stimulate the inflow of foreign direct investments the Ministry of Economy is actively working with international partners on a mechanism to insure wartime risks and to attract debt financing from IFIs for the implementation of investment projects. Despite the tense military and economic situation, the overwhelming majority of potential investors understand the inevitability of Ukraine’s Euro-Atlantic integration and are willing to consider projects in sectors that traditionally have global competitive advantages or are aimed at the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine,” said Deputy Minister of Economy Oleksandr Hryban.

    The Advantage Ukraine project team supported by the USAID Competitive Economy Program in Ukraine processes requests from foreign investors and provides professional advice and analytical support to domestic companies seeking to raise equity or debt capital. Most promising projects are concentrated in the agro-industrial sector, innovation and technology, and energy.

    According to statistical data of advantageukraine.com, the platform was visited by tens of thousands of users from 140 countries during the two months of its operation. Most of them are from G7 countries.

    As a reminder, the investment attraction initiative Advantage Ukraine was presented on September 6 as part of a major campaign developed by WPP with the support of the President of Ukraine. The platform includes investment projects and opportunities in 10 sectors of the economy with a total capacity of more than $400 billion.
