Those Ukrainian producers, who will attend this important trade promotion event, make sapid products of the highest quality, demonstrate creativity and seek success on the global market. We’re deeply convinced that this trade mission will uncover new prospects for Ukrainian producers and for European partners”, – said Jaroslawa Johnson, President and CEO of the Western NIS Enterprise Fund.

The mission program ensures business networking of retailers with importers and distributors in B2B format, as well as meetings with the Ukrainian business diaspora and an educational event on business insights in Austria.
