Increasing competitiveness in key sectors could help Ukraine attract foreign investment, boost job creation and improve long-term growth prospects.
How the OECD contributes
A first phase of the project assessed and identified three sectors for economic growth -- agribusiness, alternative energy sources, and transport equipment manufacturing -- to be used as pilots to further attract investments. Phase II of the project addressed sector-specific policy barriers to the development of those three sectors. Specific recommendations on how to overcome those barriers were summarised in policy handbooks, one for each sector.
A new phase of the project was recently launched, focusing on the transfer of OECD know-how and methodologies to Ukrainian policy makers and government representatives, to support the effective implementation of the recommendations, and build sustainable mechanisms for reform.
Meetings and seminars
Capacity-building workshops are also held, as part of the new phase of the project, focusing on the design and implementation of the sectoral recommendations. These workshops offer a platform of exchange of know-how and the discussion of case studies among the participants -- which include, in addition to government representatives, the business community, civil society and others.
