Czech interest in investing in Ukraine is ‘huge,’
Czech interest in investing in Ukraine is ‘huge,’ Radel Matula, the Czech Republic’s ambassador to Ukraine, said yesterday at a press conference at Ukrinform. “This year, we have organized several business forums in Ukraine, which shows that Czech businessmen are interested in cooperation with Ukrainian partners,” he said. “The interest is huge.” Running short of labor, the Czech Republic streamlined the process this year of issuing work permits to Ukrainians. Last year, bilateral trade increased by 29%. This year, first quarter trade was up 35%, to $426 million.
