We continue to cover the participation of the Chairman of the Board VV Stavynyuk. at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai, to which the Ukrainian delegation arrived under the chairmanship of Stepan Kubiv, First Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine’s Minister for Economic Development and Trade.
An event, the value of which is difficult to assess in the context of world trade, will continue until November 10th. More than 2,800 companies (including the world’s 500 most powerful and more than 200 leading industry companies) and 150,000 buyers coming from different parts of the world will gather in the Chinese metropolis to participate in an unprecedentedly large trade event. The importance of the exhibition has already been appreciated by China President Xi Jinping, who noted that China’s international import EXPO is the world’s first national exhibition focused on imports, which is why EXPO is a “big step in the history of international trade development.”
It should be noted that Ukraine for the first time represents its National stand, trade, investment and tourism potential for events of such global significance. At the opening of our booth, First Vice Prime Minister – Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine Stepan Kubiv congratulated the PRC’s real steps on diversification of markets and openness. In this he sees great potential for deepening economic cooperation between our countries. Especially, given that Ukraine is part of the initiative to build the “Greater Silk Road” economic belt and the transit hub between Europe and Asia.
SFII participation in this exhibition takes place as an exclusive active guide between Chinese business and domestic projects. We are convinced that thanks to EXPO Ukraine will receive not only an increase in trade turnover, but also implementation of compatible strategic projects, including innovative ones. After all, China has all the conditions and capabilities to provide a multilateral, open trade and economic platform to promote the development of global trade and joint technology development. The chairman of the Board of Directors, carrying out dozens of meetings with potential investors, noted the sincere interest of representatives of international business to the Ukrainian economy, in particular, to investment objects in which the State, in the person of the Office, may take part as a co-investor.
Together with this SFII leadership, attention was paid to the scientific and technological development of our countries, including digitalisation, which could contribute to industrial development, influence people’s lives, and provide an effective support for the sustainable development of the Ukrainian economy.
