Discussion with Members of the Ukrainian Parliament
BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer met a delegation of Members of the Ukrainian Parliament. It was an opportunity to reiterate our strong condemnation of Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, discuss the situation on the ground, the needs of the country to rebuild its economy and how European business can help in this respect. Ukraine is setting up a restauration roadmap to rebuild infrastructure destroyed by the war, provide housing and help industries return to the country and reorganise. Sectors that are currently under consideration include energy (gas, oil, hydrogen), information technologies, automotive, raw materials, agriculture and food amongst others. At the same time, finding viable solutions to the transport and logistics problems caused by the closed ports and the congestion at the land borders will remain a key priority. BusinessEurope will continue to maintain close contacts with the Ukrainian Mission to the EU, the government and business representatives in our efforts to support the Ukrainian economy.
