Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce became the first bilateral business association to sign the Memorandum of the Coalition of Business Communities of Ukraine, initiated by CEO Club Ukraine, the Board business community, SUP and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Ukraine. The memorandum outlines the general economic vision for the development of post-war Ukraine and the basic principles of future economic policy. Nearly hundred national, regional and industry associations and communities have joined the signing of the Memorandum.
“CUCC is honored to be the first international organization to join such a powerful and important alliance of Ukrainian businesses, associations and real business leaders. The Joint Memorandum is only the first step on the way of creating new transparent rules of the game, creating reliable institutions and strengthening the role of reputable business in the reconstruction of Ukraine. We believe now is the time to come together and act for real change!” – Yuriy Kryvosheya, Board Member at CUCC and member of CEO Club Ukraine.
CUCC is currently working on a number of initiatives to support Ukrainian people, business and economy, including: finding jobs for Ukrainian specialists affected by the war, supporting business relocation, and helping with finding partners and suppliers in Canada.
