How can Kyiv become the center of Europe? Find answers at the Kyiv Investment Forum 2019


New Ukraine, Ukraine

The focus of this year’s Kyiv Investment Forum that will take place on 17 September at the Mystetskyi Arsenal, lies on the strategy of creation and development of the Kyiv agglomeration. The forum will bring together Ukrainian and international investors, representatives of foreign municipalities, local governments, the Kyiv business elite, IT and art communities. The participants of the forum will discuss the potential of the capital and the Kyiv region as a whole and will provide recommendations on how to turn Kyiv agglomeration into a modern metropolis: a place of attraction for investors, tourists and innovative entrepreneurs.

“Given the popularity of urban tourism, the Kyiv agglomeration has the potential of becoming one of Europe’s hubs for various festivals, artistic events, culinary tourism, and for the creative economy. Our goal is to create the Greater Kyiv brand, just like the world-famous Greater London” says Vitaly Klitschko, Kyiv Mayor.

Special guests of the Investment Forum will be representatives of the political elite and foreign municipalities from around the world who will share their experiences.

The event includes panel discussions with the participation of the leading experts on the social identity of Kyiv and the creative economy for the future agglomeration, as well as discussions on the infrastructure solutions for the development of the metropolis of the future. Attention will also be paid to potential accelerators for the development of metropolitan tourism like cultural, musical and sporting events.

The Kyiv Investment Forum 2009 is an event that signals unification and mutually beneficial inter-municipal cooperation to accelerate the socio-economic development of all communities involved.

Last year’s Kyiv Investment Forum was held on 27 November 2019 and gathered more than 500 participants from 23 countries. In particular, business and investment communities, central and city governments, international financial institutions and the media. 30 urban projects were presented during the forum to attract investment in various fields of innovation.
