On 1st of November in Frankfurt am Main took place FORUM: Innovative solutions in a digitalized economy: Ukraine – Germany
Under the topic “Innovative solutions in a digitalized economy: Ukraine – Germany,” high-ranking representatives from politics, business, and sciences from both countries met in Frankfurt in the historic Villa Bonn – as well as virtually. The federal state of Hessen, which is one of the most successful German federal states, was represented by two state ministers Michael Boddenberg (finance) and Prof. Dr. Kristina Sinemus (digital strategy and development), who came to Frankfurt from the capital Wiesbaden. On the part of Ukraine, Deputy Foreign Minister Dmytro Senyk was virtually present.
The forum was organized by the Consulate General of Ukraine in Frankfurt, the Embassy of Ukraine in Berlin, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, and Digital Bridge Builders, Frankfurt.
A delegation from the city of Kyiv was welcomed separately, headed by Deputy Mayor Petro Olenych. In three very lively panels, which Ukrainian and German experts equally represented, topics such as cyber security, digitization of public administration, and other bilaterally essential topics were presented and discussed.
The involvement of the Frankfurt Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Frankfurt / Rhein-Main Economic Development Corporation, TechUkraine, Digital Transformation Institute, and the Digital Ministry of Ukraine highlighted the high level of technical development in each case, which leaves plenty of room for mutual cooperation.
The sides expressed the wish to repeat this type of forum soon.
Thank our partners and TechUkraine Changemakers Viktoria Radzievska!
