With developed markets being in stagnation, investors are searching of places for potential investing. Ukraine presents exactly what investors are looking for.
Expected to have only 2.2% growth of GDP in 2012, Ukraine has definitely slowed down from the boom years 2000-2008, when the annual growth of GDP was 7,5%. However as Europe slides into recession, Ukraine’s positive growth rate still places it among the region’s leaders.
In Ukraine there are a lot of opportunities and projects in different areas (real estate, energy, agriculture, hospitality, consumer goods industry, shipbuilding, machine building, finance industry, infrastructure, metallurgy industry, etc.) which require investment for further development. Most of these projects are very profitable as for the Ukrainian part, as for the foreign investor.
Ukraine has created a developed legal environment for investments. Ukrainian legislation provides indispensable guarantees for investors’ activities. On the territory of Ukraine foreign investors are assisted by national regulations for investment activity, which means that they are in equal conditions with native investors. Foreign investments in Ukraine are not subject to nationalization which is also very important fot investors.
To improve protection of foreign investors the Convention on the Settlement of Investment Disputes between Statesand Nationals of Other States from 1965 was ratified by the Law of Ukraine dated 16.03.2000 No. 1547.
Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine signed and ratified intergovernmental agreements on promotion and mutual protection of investments with more than 70 countries.
To support foreign investors State agencies and local consulting companies were founded.
During 2010-2011 a number of legislative acts were adopted to assist the improvement of investment climate in Ukraine.
In 2011 the government reviewed and adopted the Investment reform of Ukraine. The main objective of the reform is active involvement of foreign direct investments into Ukraine’s economy, forming a positive image of Ukraine in the world and positioning of Ukraine as a financial, political and business centre in the Eastern Europe.
In support of this initiative, Foreign Direct Investment is actively encouraged.
Investing in the emerging economy, investors need an independent opinion on the technical, market and financial viability of the proposed project.
