Ukraine has made good progress across a broad front of legal and regulatory issues concerning the general business climate, but the country still needs to address major challenges. From the perspective of investors and legal analysts, a lack in consistency and coherence of legislation can affect investment decisions.

The primary purpose of this meeting was to better assess the current situation and needs of the legal landscape with regard to business, identify priorities in the field of investment and private sector development, both domestic and foreign, and to gather experiences from various stakeholders in order to develop a set of recommendations on how to further improve the business climate in the Ukraine.
