Ukraine is ranked fourth according to the Emerging Europe’s annual investment promotion research by Estonia’s investment promotion agency.
- As a part of its awards programme, Emerging Europe has since 2018 been researching how the region’s 23 national investment promotion agencies (IPAs) communicate their value proposition and how they use their digital channels to grab the attention of potential investors to the various business opportunities offered by key sectors.
- Lithuania again took second place this year, with Czechia in third, climbing above Ukraine which drops to fourth. Latvia rounds out the top five.
Andrew Wrobel, Emerging Europe’s founding partner: “Ukraine’s position in the ranking, although one place below its third place of 2021, is nevertheless remarkable given the Russian invasion of the country, and evidence, the country remains open for business. There are still investors looking at Ukraine, not least its IT sector which has shown remarkable resilience.”
