Investing in Ukraine
The investment climate in Ukraine
Despite administrative difficulties, the investment climate in Ukraine has improved significantly in recent years. Positive changes have been achieved in the areas of taxes, currency, banking, and the fight against bureaucracy. The Doing Business index of the World Bank also shows a significant improvement in the country's investment climate. Currently, Ukraine ranks 64th (out of 190 countries) in the ease of doing business ranking “Doing Business 2020” moving up seven positions since its last edition.
The signing of a comprehensive Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU, allowing for increased trade and cooperation in different economic activities, has also contributed to a significant improvement in the investment climate.
