We would like to invite you to a Ukraine-Luxembourg Business Forum "EARLY RECOVERY OF UKRAINE" with a charity dinner which will take place on January 30- 31st 2023 in Luxembourg.
The Russian invasion into Ukraine will have far reaching consequences in variety of areas: the situation has evolved into humanitarian crisis, has turned food and energy security volatile and raises questions about the architecture of global security. These challenges will not be limited to Ukraine, but due to the globalized world.
The Business Forum aims to support the relationship between Ukrainian and Luxembourgish business members in both countries, to expand their network of contacts, develop their business skills, promote leading businesses with their peers, to raise awareness of businesses about opportunities for cooperation in different fields, to draw the attention of international investors to the potential capabilities of the market in Ukraine with the purpose of attracting foreign investments to Ukraine and to inform international investors about funding opportunities from international financial institutions to reach a new level of the Ukraine market development.
The Business Forum will comprise of the following panels, taking place within two days (January 30-31, 2023):
1. THE RULE OF LAW
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has made the rule of law more relevant than ever internationally. The rule of law is supposedly a paramount concern for all democracies, even if both their definitions and their priorities sometimes differ. The Forum will provide the ideas in drafting laws that safeguard individual freedoms, by offering training courses, developing methodologies and providing expert opinions.
2. DEMOCRATIC REFORMS
Recovery is a massive task and poses challenges that cannot be precisely measured at this point. However, the scale of response and resources needed can already be anticipated. The aim of the Forum is to bring together reform-makers from Ukraine’s Government and civil society to discuss the necessary after- war democratic reforms, how they will enhance the country’s standing as EU candidate country and what more remains to be done. The speakers and discussants will include prominent Ukrainian members of Parliament, the Government and civil society groups.
3. SOCIAL POLICIES
The veteran community will become one of the largest in Ukraine - Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized.
Now about a million people are defending Ukraine in the Armed Forces and in other formations that oppose the occupiers. This means that the veteran community will become one of the largest in the country. And this means that appropriate changes are needed that reflect this new reality in the state policy regarding veterans, in the public perception of veterans and in all our economic players.
4. INFRASTRUCTURE EARLY RECOVERY
Destroyed lives, destroyed homes and destroyed infrastructure are the immediate consequences of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Reconstruction and rehabilitation plan for Ukrainian industry, infrastructure (energy, transport, etc.) are urgently needed and the Business Forum will consider rehabilitation of the public (roads, hospitals, schools) and private (housing, commercial estate) sectors.
The war in Ukraine has brought about not only a humanitarian crisis but a set of challenges and risks. Given the enabling role of connectivity and digitalisation, understanding the investment gaps and swiftly addressing their root causes is more important and pressing than ever. The TECHNOLOGY panel will cover the following topics: Fintech, regtech, med tech; Startups; Cybersecurity; Space and satellite.
Ukraine is among the world’s biggest breadbaskets. As a result, commodity prices are reaching record highs across the board. The impacts of the war in Ukraine is being felt not only regionally, but around the world because of the region’s significant contribution to food supplies. The Agri Forum will discuss the possibilities of financial support to the agri companies in Ukraine, the questions of logistics and agri technologies.
Since the start of Russia’s war, education system became another front in Ukraine’s fight for freedom. Among the those trapped in the conflict zone are millions of children whose homes and schools are suddenly on the front line of the war. In the easter cities schools and universities were physically destroyed by Russian missiles. Luxembourg state together with the universities offers grants and financial aid to the Ukrainian refugees and are seeking cooperation with Ukrainian universities, applying new education technologies. And these will be the key topic of discussion for the Education panel.
