At a round table in Kiev on 12 December Robert Kirchner, Deputy Team Leader of the German Advisory Group Ukraine, and David Saha, Consultant, presented the updated study on “Unlocking investment through reforms: Proposals from German business in Ukraine”. The event was part of a round table organized in cooperation with the German-Ukrainian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK). Yulia Svyrydenko, Vice Minister in the Ukrainian Ministry of Economics, who among others participated in the event, was very interested in the results of the study.
In view of the change of government, the new parliament and the time since the first presentation of the study, the German Advisory Group Ukraine has carried out extensive monitoring of the implementation of the original proposals. This monitoring showed significant progress in the implementation of more than half of the proposals, but only a few proposals have been fully implemented so far.
