Ukraine expects to receive business missions from the Netherlands


Prime Ministers of Ukraine and the Netherlands have agreed to organise business missions for investors.

Ukraine expects an increase in investment flows from the Netherlands, which is one of the leaders in terms of investment in the Ukrainian economy. This was stated by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal during a meeting with the Prime Minister of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Mark Rutte in Kyiv.

Denys Shmyhal noted that the volume of investments from the Netherlands to Ukraine’s economy as of October 1, 2021, amounted to more than USD 11 billion.


The Netherlands is an important trade and economic partner of Ukraine and one of the major investors in the Ukrainian economy. I am convinced that due to joint work the volume of these investments can increase significantly. This applies not only to traditional areas of cooperation, but also to the most advanced areas of cooperation, such as land reclamation, mining and engineering.
