The conference will include a business forum and panels on recovery in the main areas of the economy and social sphere.

The following topics are on the agenda:

  • Plan for the recovery and development of Ukraine (within the framework of President Zelensky's United 24 initiative) and contributions of international partners to Ukraine’s recovery
  • Recovery methods, priorities, and principles; social, economic, environmental and infrastructural recovery from damages and losses caused by war
  • Reforms that are possible or necessary to implement in the current situation

Chair of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Ruslan Stefanchuk and members of Parliament, several Ukrainian ministers, high-ranking officials of the EU, international financial institutions, and human rights organizations have already arrived in Lugano.

More than 40 countries and more than 20 international organizations are invited to participate in the conference.
