“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.
