Investigating Business Opportunities for Canadian Companies in Ukraine

What makes Ukraine an appealing market for Canadian businesses despite more than 7000 + km distance?

Even as the war continues, the global community is keenly focused on the topic of post-war reconstruction of Ukraine. The biggest financial institutions, governments of many countries, and private corporations are engaged in dialogues and actions to support Ukraine’s rebuilding efforts and enable private businesses to participate in this process.

Join us for an engaging dialogue during our upcoming event, “Investigating Business Opportunities for Canadian Companies in Ukraine.” We bring together experts from the Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce, BDO in Ukraine, Trade Commissioner Service at the Embassy of Canada in Ukraine, Export Development Canada, and EBRD. This is a prime opportunity to gain insights into exporting goods/services to Ukraine, establishing business, and finding investment prospects in the country.

The event is organized with support of the Embassy of Canada in Ukraine.
