According to him, Ukraine has many promising projects.

“The Export–Import Bank of the United States provides $3 billion to finance contracts and projects in Ukraine. I spoke about the most promising areas: energy, agriculture, defense industry, extraction and processing of critical raw materials, as well as IT,” the Prime Minister emphasized.

Shmyhal offered the U.S. partners to create a Supervisory Board for Ukraine Invest, the government office for attracting and supporting investment.

“It will include the heads of American companies. This will improve our cooperation, attract new American investments to our market, and facilitate the operational work of American companies in Ukraine on a daily basis. We are strengthening our economic resilience for victory and recovery,” emphasized Shmyhal.
