The forum will include the main session focusing on the new opportunities of attractive industries for investment, as well as four panel discussions: “Tools to Attract Investments in Greater Kiev Projects”, “Climate Change Adaptation: Rapid Urban Development and Protection of the Environment ”,“ Keeping the Community Healthier ”and“ Creative Transformation: Codes of the New Reality ”. The event will continue with a public conference dedicated to attracting investment in the development of the metropolis.
Throughout the forum, Kiev companies will also show investors the potential of the capital region in the areas of health, food industry, production of consumer goods, logistics, high technology, public administration, entertainment industry, as well as chemical and FMCG industries.
