Risks and opportunities for Ukraine

During this global economic crisis, international businesses are looking for new markets and manufacturing sites in order to minimize production costs. Therefore, considering the latest world trends, the Ukrainian market is increasingly interesting global players as a promising platform for investment, sales growth and the transfer of manufacturing capacities, thus reducing production costs.

And it is only in emerging markets that now offer respectable returns on investment in the short term, allowing significant profits to be made.

Nevertheless, such high-margin markets are also considered to be high-risk markets, and Ukraine is no exception. Additional risks for foreign companies in Ukraine include frequent changes in legislation, inconsistent judiciary, threat of asset loss, and taxation, including significant fees demanded by tax and regulatory authorities.

Yet, as our long-term practice shows, almost all of the abovementioned risks can and should be minimized. For a business to be successful in Ukraine, their minimization should serve as the foundation of business processes and decision-making.

Obtaining planned financial profits and controlling the “uncontrolled processes” is possible only under this condition. In addition, we have unprecedented experience in designing and implementing unique author strategies tailored for any ambitious organization that seeks to turn risks into new business opportunities.

What is original in the strategies and solutions we develop and implement for our clients is that they are formed upon the existing regulatory framework and necessarily include an approach to the minimization of risks (business, investment, legal, tax, loss of assets, etc.).

Our solutions meet the highest business standards and allow our clients to achieve their planned revenues, since they receive high-tech and safe business solutions to guide them in the risky but very profitable business environment of the Ukrainian market.
