Inaugural U.S. - Ukrainian Investment Symposium “Sustaining Momentum” to take place at Boston's Harvard Club
Sustaining the Orange Revolution US-Ukrainian Investment Symposium to be held in Boston on October 31st
On behalf of Secretary Mosbacher, Chairman of the International Economic Alliance (IEA), and the members of the IEA Board of Advisors, the public is invited to participate in the U.S.-Ukrainian Investment Symposium on October 31st, 2005 at the Harvard Club of Boston, one day in advance of the 9th Annual U.S.-Russian Investment Symposium.
This Symposium features the most comprehensive representation of business interests in Ukraine ever convened in the U.S. that matches support from the U.S. and Ukrainian Governments, along with partners such as the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank, and the American Chamber of Commerce Ukraine.
As political changes bring new hope for Ukraine’s transition, the U.S. and Ukrainian governments are working to sustain momentum with a discerning policy towards foreign investment-- highlighting Ukraine’s core competencies as a trading nation and delivering finance to the next generation of ‘strategic industries.’ This Symposium is an opportunity for regional stakeholders to advance this agenda, undertake a critical examination of Ukraine’s investment climate, and cast spotlights on business opportunities. Through a framework of moderated Panel discussions designed by Harvard Business School professors, this event anchors investors’ questions and provides a platform for business leaders to meet new partners. It is an indispensable opportunity for decision-makers to take charge of the economic and political evolution of the region.
