Dragon Capital Holds 11th Annual Ukraine Investor Conference
“Political and financial support Ukraine is receiving and will continue to receive in the form of EFF from the IMF and AA/DCFTA with the EU will provide the necessary carrot and stick to move Ukraine towards a better future”
Dragon Capital held its 11th Annual Ukraine Investor Conference on Feb. 17-18 in Kyiv. Despite the country’s tense security situation and economic challenges predictably affecting investor sentiment, the conference was attended by over 100 international investors as well as about 200 local investors and Ukrainian companies.
Tomas Fiala, CEO of Dragon Capital, opened the conference on a positive note: “I am very optimistic about the international support, both political and financial, that Ukraine is receiving and will continue to receive. And this support in the form of an Extended Fund Facility from the IMF and association and free trade agreement (AA/DCFTA) with the EU will provide the necessary carrot and stick to move along the path of convergence and integration with the EU, which has brought prosperity to all of Ukraine’s western neighbors.
The conference featured keynote speakers including former Deputy PM and Finance Minister of Slovakia Ivan Miklos, Verkhovna Rada Deputy Speaker Oksana Syroyid, and Deputy Head of Presidential Administration Dmytro Shymkiv. The conference sessions included a meeting with Cabinet ministers, a macroeconomic panel discussion attended by National Bank Governor Valeria Gontareva, and a food & agriculture workshop.
