Post-COVID-19. The Kyiv Investment Forum will discuss the development of the capital in the face of global challenges


Ways to overcome the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic and restore the social and economic development of the capital will be the main topic Kyiv Investment Forum. This choice is due to the global trend towards localization of business and investment, their development in some agglomerations due to the quarantine regime caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was reported in the Department of Economics and Investment of the Kyiv City State Administration.

The event is planned for September 2020. But its implementation will depend on the situation in the country and the world.

«The conditions of strict quarantine have raised many questions, particularly in the economic sphere. Violation of trade flows between countries leads to the localization of business. In such conditions, the support of local producers is needed. The city’s infrastructure also needs to be rethought. The epidemic has shown the need to create critical infrastructure that can provide Kyiv with autonomous operation in the event of further pandemics. That is why this year Investment forum will be held under the slogan Go Local. Think Global – Act locally. Think globally“, – said the director of the Department of Economy and Investment of the Kyiv City State Administration Natalia Melnyk.

“In times of global turbulence, Kyiv needs to develop a strategy that is ready to adapt to an ever-changing world,” she added.

New business conditions require concentration: on small business development and meeting the basic needs of consumers, health and safety, impact on local communities, finding strategic approaches to local cultural heritage, tourism potential and entertainment industry within the agglomeration of Kyiv.

Last year’s Investment Forum of the city of Kyiv, which took place in September 2019, was dedicated to the idea of ​​creating a Greater Kyiv. It brought together about a thousand experts and opinion leaders from around the world. Among the participants of the forum were the mayor of Krakow Jacek Maychrowski, the vice-mayor of Budapest Gabor Bagdi, the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007 Rajendra Pachauri. The Forum was opened by Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko.
