Kiev International Economic Forum, one of the most significant business events of the year, took place in the capital on October 5-6.
Politicians, businessmen, opinion leaders and diplomats from many countries are gathering for this event for the fourth year in a row.

This year conference was not an exception. The KIEF participants raised important questions that concerned both Ukraine and the whole world. This year the theme of the conference was stated as "Ukraine and the world in the new economic reality: how to respond to changes and not miss opportunities".

As part of the forum, the participants discussed the impact of significant political events on the economy, including Ukrainian economy. What impact did the fact that Donald Trump was elected the President of the United States have on our country? Did Brexit influence the relations between the UK and Ukraine, the economy of our country and the countries of the European Union? The leading economists, businessmen and politicians tried to find answers to these and many other important questions. In total there were 120 speakers and about 1500 guests from 30 countries participating in the conference.

Vladimir Groysman, the Prime Minister of Ukraine, in his opening speech said that Ukraine’s voice at the world arena was becoming more and more loud and confident. He also stated that since there were plenty of competent specialists in our country who were capable of creating innovative products, it was important to ensure that they had proper working conditions.

During the two days of Kyiv International Economic Forum, the participants had an opportunity to visit 20 panel discussions and 10 round tables. Some of the important topics discussed were new "environment friendly" entrepreneurship, new technologies in agricultural business, financing of the real economy sector, tax and financial reforms, digital technologies, business education and many others.

The event was held at the “Parkovy” Convention and Exhibition Centre. Taking into account the scale and duration of the event, as well as the status of guests invited to it, it was important to ensure security during the forum at the highest possible level, in terms of both protection and comfort for participants and guests of the forum.
