Jean-Erik de Zagon, Head of the EIB Resident Representation for Ukraine, considers the food industry and IT to be the most promising industries for investment in Ukraine.
"You have many promising sectors. Obviously, your soil is one of the best in the world, or even the best, for the food industry. But I think it's important for Ukraine to have more than just grain so that you can move on to more complex things. I think it can be organic food," he said at the morning show "Good European Morning, Ukraine!", broadcast on Facebook page of the EU Delegation to Ukraine, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
The IT sector, in his opinion, is very strong and worthy of investors’ attention.
Jean-Erik de Zagon also pointed out the joint implementation of "green economy" programs with the Government of Ukraine.
“The Bank is really moving in one direction – towards the ‘green economy’. In this sense, what we can do is to support the Government on the path towards ‘green economy’, which is what we are doing. We also feel strong support from the Government. We are moving in this direction and believe that this is the future,” de Zagon said.
Among other EIB priorities, the Head of the Resident Representation mentioned the development of infrastructure, transport, energy, and the private sector.
As reported, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Olha Stefanishyna said that Ukraine intended to present its second Nationally Determined Contribution pursuant to the Paris Agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference this autumn.
