Ukraine attracts almost $5B in investment in Jan-Sept 2021 – PM Shmyhal
Ukraine received $4.8 billion in foreign direct investment in January-September 2021, according to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal.
“Over the three quarters of 2021, the balance of foreign direct investment reached $4.8 billion, which is a record amount of foreign direct investment in the past years. For comparison, there was $3.7 billion in 2017, $4.5 billion in 2018,” Shmyhal wrote on Facebook.
He added that a significant amount of investment coming in Ukraine is reinvestment. Therefore, one of the important tasks for newly appointed Minister of Economy Yulia Svyrydenko is to work with foreign investors and further improve the investment climate in Ukraine.
As reported, the European Union has provided Ukraine with a total of €190 million in aid to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and a €1.2 billion macro-financial assistance program.
