Capital investments in Ukraine grew by 26.5% in first half of 2018

In the first half of 2018, the capital investments in Ukraine grew by 26.5%.

"Large foreign investors believe in the prospects of our country. They create jobs despite the fact that the war with Russia is still ongoing. In the first half of this year, the capital investments grew by exorbitant 26.5%," President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said at the 15th Yalta European Strategy (YES) Annual Meeting, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The Head of State reminded about the launch of several major investment projects in September, namely, the Norway’s investments in the renewable energy in southern Ukraine to the tune of almost half a billion dollars and the investments of Saudi Arabia in the Ukrainian agro-industrial complex.

"I have no right to reveal the sum, but I can say this is the largest investment contract in the agricultural sector in the history of independent Ukraine," the President stressed.

In addition, a German company invested two hundred million dollars in its factory that had been opened recently in Zhytomyr region, Poroshenko noted.
