Ukraine’s Accession to the EU Single Market Program: Looking into SME Landscape and the Needs of Entrepreneurs in Ukraine

On February 2nd, Ukraine and the European Union signed an agreement on Ukraine’s participation in the Single Market Program. The European Union’s Single Market Program is a financial support initiative of the EU with a budget of 4.2 billion EUR, designed for 7 years (from 2021 to 2027). Ukraine’s accession to this program will strengthen Ukrainian business sector as well as cooperation with the EU, which is especially important in view of the European integration processes and Ukraine’s EU candidate status. But what will it take for the effective implementation?

This webcast is a follow-up of the debate, hosted by Ivan Štefanec MEP in Strasbourg, where we learned a lot of practical findings and data on the current local business sentiment and the needs of UA/EU exporters. It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join this virtual discussion on 12 April at 10 AM CET (90 MIN) .
