Ukraine’s laws on incentives for industrial parks are going through fundamental changes, and our team is a part of this process. The panel discussions is an opportunity to bring together people from business, political and public spheres to discuss the latest legislative changes, impact they will have on business, and, find solutions to practical problems arising while creating the industrial park.
