Business lunch about opportunities in Ukraine with Mr. Vasyl Myroshnychenko, Ukrainian Ambassador to Australia.

About this event

This is a unique opportunity to meet in an informal setting with the Ukrainian Ambassador to Australia, His Excellency Mr. Vasyl Myroshnychenko, to find out about business opportunities in Ukraine and understand what Ukraine can offer in return. Before the war Ukraine’s economy was mostly resource focused, with agriculture and metals making up the bulk of exports. Of Ukraine’s $49.5 billion exports of goods, 63% comes from raw materials or low-processed and consumable resources products, such as corn and wheat, semi-finished iron, and forested logs or saw-milled lumber. 42% of Ukraine’s exports of goods are food and agricultural products.

Ukraine is home to companies operating in around 20 major industries, namely power generation, fuel, ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, chemical and petrochemical, gas, machine building and metal-working, timber and paper, and construction. It is rich in iron ore, manganese, titanium, graphite, uranium, neon gas and krypton.

But a new generation of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) have found ways to make Ukraine excel in a number of hi-tech and added value exports. These hidden champions are exporting e-bikes, drones, jewellery, and more. Whilst the war has currently diminished the industrial base in Ukraine, we are confident that the war will end with Ukraine prevailing and Ukraine embarking on the path of reconstruction of its economy. Australia has been exporting wine, wool and some electronics to Ukraine, while importing rigid hull inflatable boats, sunflower oil and some products of the metallurgic industry.

Who is this for?

Ties between Ukraine and Australia have been developing since 1992, and whilst not yet major trading partners there have been positive developments. Both Ukraine and Australia are rich in natural resources, have advanced agriculture and strong democratic institutions that provide a stable environment for business. This business lunch will enable numerous opportunities for farsighted investors in mining, logistics, construction, agriculture, banking, insurance and services sectors.Ukraine has a large state-owned industrial sector with plans for privatisation underway. A favourable climate for business investment is being cultivated through different means, which may include the creation of free trade zones You will have an opportunity to discuss these and many other opportunities directly with the Ukrainian Ambassador to Australia – there is no more direct a source to understand what the Ukrainian Government is planning!
