    Representatives of the London Stock Exchange support the “Made in Ukraine” policy. During a meeting with Julia Hoggett, CEO of the London Stock Exchange, Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Ukraine presented the new policy “Made in Ukraine”, which was created to promote the development of Ukrainian producers.

    “The Government’s Made in Ukraine programme resonates with international partners and they are ready to support it. We told our partners how they can also strengthen it, for example, by supporting Ukrainian producers in their procurement, investing in businesses in Ukraine and increasing the representation of Ukrainian goods on the UK market. And the representatives of the London Stock Exchange share our opinion that such steps will further stimulate the development of the Ukrainian economy,” said Yuliia Svyrydenko.

    In addition, the parties agreed that experts from the London Stock Exchange and the British organisation TheCityUK would help Ukraine build the capacity of the Investment Promotion Agency within the framework of the memorandum signed earlier. The Ukrainian Government is currently working on setting up the agency.

    “We have discussed very concrete next steps in working together to bring the experience and expertise of our British colleagues to this agency. The United Kingdom is one of the world’s most developed financial centres, so their experience will be useful in creating a favourable financial ecosystem in Ukraine. We are grateful to the British side for their willingness to engage their expertise for this purpose,” explained Yuliia Svyrydenko.

    In addition, the London Stock Exchange and TheCityUk will conduct a study on expanding opportunities for state-owned companies to raise capital.
