As evidenced by the study of the European Business Association, the investment attractiveness index of Ukraine left the negative area and reached its peak for the last 6 years.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this in his address to the participants of the Ukrainian Financial Forum.

"According to the study conducted by the European Business Association, the investment attractiveness index of Ukraine finally left the negative area and reached its peak for the last 6 years, including pre-war time. The enterprises, which were interviewed by the association, intend to expand production, increase wages and create new jobs next year," he said.

At the same time, the President of Ukraine pointed out that Moody's upgraded Ukraine's credit rating: "The negative rating dated March 2015 gradually gave way to the positive rating in August 2017". Standard & Poor's also affirmed Ukraine's long-term foreign- and local-currency issuer default ratings (IDRs) at 'B-/B' with a stable outlook.

"A total of 214 fund managers from 154 investment companies, interviewed by the Institutional Investor's research group, put Ukraine first on the list of countries they plan to visit next year to make investments or assess such prospects," Poroshenko added.
