“The use of concession mechanism will allow the state to attract significant private investments to modernize and increase the efficiency of use of infrastructural objects such as sea and river ports, highways, airports, as well as other state-owned objects, which will allow Ukraine to realize its transit potential and give a new quality of transport services. We invite U.S. companies to join concession projects in Ukraine,” said Kryklii.
