Time to Invest in Ukraine

Speaking at the "Ukraine’s European Vector: Impact on Business" confernce organised by Concorde Capital in London, Managing Director of Arbat Capital Alexey Golubovich said: 

«The recent political changes give Ukraine an opportunity to be the first big country in the post-Soviet space to make a real large-scale transition from a government-controlled to free market economy. Ukraine has the potential for successful modernization and liberal economic reform. Worsening trade conditions with Russia is the main challenge to Ukraine, and they might harm some sectors (railcar, paper, furniture and confectionery producers). With the right package of reforms, Ukraine has a chance for the fast modernization of export-oriented industries and its agro-industrial sphere. It inexpensive and highly qualified workforce and position “near the EU, but without full-scale EU bureaucratic regulations” offer an excellent  opportunity for growth. The most attractive sectors for investments are food, grain producers, sunflower and other oil-bearing crop processors, building materials, IT services, transportation and storage, and sea ports».
