Currently, we are directing our main efforts to the reconstruction of what’s been destroyed and invite investors to invest in the development of projects in Ukraine. For our part, we are looking for ways to insure investments and have already had some success in this. Currently, the Government has identified five priorities for rapid recovery: energy, housing, critical infrastructure, demining, and economic recovery – development of small and medium-sized businesses," said Yuliya Svyridenko.
