2017/Q4 Ukraine Newsletter
Dear Friends and Partners,
Please find attached our VI2 Partners Q4 2017 newsletter on recent developments in Ukraine and on our activities.
Slowly, but consistently, Ukraine is breaking through the political and economic turmoil. Ukraine has climbed four positions in the Doing Business 2018 raking of the World Bank and advanced 105 positions in the field of ease if obtaining construction permits as well as 41 positions upwards in the indicator “tax payment”.
The Government is proceeding with the reforms to raise the effectiveness of the national economy and encourage local as well as international businesses to invest and develop their capacities in Ukraine. The net inflow of FDI in Ukraine in January-September increased 40 % in comparison with 2016.
However, a slow-down in the fight against corruption and recent setbacks in that regard have raised the attention of foreign investors and Governments and should be watched carefully.
Overall, there are enough reasons to optimistically look forward to the year 2018.
VI2 Partners would like to express warmest season’s greetings and to wish you and your families a successful and healthy 2018!
