The conference will showcase the strength and potential of the private sector in supporting Ukraine to “build back better”, working alongside a broad coalition of governments, international organisations, and civil society.
The conference will focus on how best to enable private sector investment, including the role of governments and international financial institutions, Ukraine’s own transformation and reform programme, and the support of the international community.
We are developing the conference programme and a detailed agenda which will be shared on this website in due course.
We anticipate that the majority of sessions at the conference will be open to all those invited, but further details will be available once the detailed agenda is released.
Open sessions at the conference will be available to live stream on the website.
We will offer simultaneous interpretation into Ukranian at sessions during the conference and through the live streaming.
Unfortunately, as conference participant numbers are limited you will not be able to bring an interpreter with you. Please contact UkraineRecovery.ConferenceEnquiries@fcdo.gov.uk as soon as possible if you have any concerns.
In the run up to the Conference, and working with other key partners, we will be working up a range of announcements and deliverables that relate to sector specific sessions and breakouts.
The Department of Business and Trade has launched Business Bridge Ukraine, a pilot initiative through which members of the global business community can connect with Ukrainian companies, supporting reconstruction and recovery through the building of sustainable and long-lasting commercial relationships. Bringing together Ukrainian businesses, global counterparts and the UK private sector all within a single space, the platform will provide a forum for relevant businesses and their expertise to connect, convene and collaborate with complementary partners in Ukraine. The platform has now been launched ahead of URC, and will allow relevant businesses to connect and engage with counterparts both at the conference and beyond. Businesses who are interested in joining the platform may express their interest in doing so here.
The Ukraine Business Compact gives international businesses a platform to show their support for Ukraine’s recovery. As a signatory, you will join companies around the world declaring your support for the recovery and reconstruction of Ukraine. This includes looking for opportunities, when the time is right, to engage in trade and investment, peer-to-peer expertise sharing, pro bono work, and business activities.
On behalf of the Governments of Ukraine and the United Kingdom, we would also like to take the opportunity to invite you to sign the Ukraine Business Compact 2023 here – a declarative and non-binding statement of international business support for Ukraine’s recovery. Password: URC_2023_apklsnbdudor
