    Marshall Plan 2.0: Revitalisation and Recovery for Ukraine

The outrageous invasion by Russia and the courage of Ukrainian people continue to seize the global community. The consequences for those affected are shocking and the consequences for the world in terms of tolerating this behaviour are clear.

The world is engaged in economic warfare sided with support to Ukraine military defence.
How more can we help as individuals, communities, companies, governments and nations?

Over the next weeks we will hold a number of virtual discussions bringing together EU business leaders and Ukrainians in an effort to identify best relief actions for the part of Europe that is now subjected to an unfair and brutal attack.

Keep Calm and Carry On:
How To Keep Ukraine's Economy
Running During War

MONDAY, 28 MARCH, 4 PM CET (60 MIN)

The sheer extent to which the international business community, both within and outside Ukraine,
is rallying to support the country has no historical equivalent in Europe. In particular, the speed
with which companies in Ukraine, both foreign and domestic, have pivot• ed from peacetime
normality to wartime activity. Still, with 10 million people directly affected by war and most of them
displaced, Ukraine’s economy is bearing an enormous pressure.

What will it take to keep it afloat?
What role business has to play?

Marshall Plan 2.0:
Revitalisation and Recovery for Ukraine

TUESDAY, 17 MAY, 4 PM CET (90 MIN)

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and the sweeping sanctions imposed on Russia in response, have triggered economic disruptions. To contain their longer-term consequences, we must start working on recovery plans now.

In Ukraine, physical and human infrastructure have been hit very hard. The country can expect massive external support for its reconstruction, during which it might be able to address past weaknesses and build new economic structures and relationships at home and abroad.

How long will the process take time?
What kind of bumps there might be on the way?

During this virtual panel we’ll hear from:

  • VALDIS DOMBROVSKIS, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission (tbc)
  • TBA, UA GOVENRMENT
  • SVITLANA MYKHAILOVSKA, EBA (TBC)
  • TETYNA YAKOVENKO, CONTACT UKRAINE (TBC)
