On October 31 and November 1, the “Misto Zmistiv” Hub hosted a two-day training on “Investment Instruments Application” for the representatives of Ukrainian local authorities and PLEDDG regional coordinators


Oleksandr Ignatenko, PLEDDG Senior Expert in Intergovernmental Cooperation and Economic Development, welcomed the participants and outlined the agenda and objectives of the training, saying:

“To hold this event, we’ve chosen Vinnytsia Oblast as a successful example of coordination and cooperation between regional state administration and city council. Alongside with their own powerful investment basis, they’ve used a range of instruments offered by our Project. The investment portal, Oblast`s passport, and industrial parks: all these are a good example of investments attraction among other Ukrainian oblasts”.

Volodymyr Merezhko, Director of Department of International Cooperation and Regional Development of Regional State Administration thanked PLEDDG for the active participation and cooperation specifically in Vinnytsia Oblast, and showcased the practice of investment instruments application:

“It is pleasant to note that both Eastern and Western Ukraine representatives are taking part in the training. I would like to mention that Vinnytsia Oblast keeps staying ahead of all social and economic indices among other Ukrainian oblasts. An advantageous geographic location, favourable business climate, advanced and diverse industrial economic sector, high intellectual capacity and highly skilled professionals: all these factors make a positive impact on investment attraction into the region. One of the State regional administration current objectives is to implement 67 investment projects that will allow to create over 6000 new jobs and ensure a fair wage for the citizens”.

Representatives from Ivano-Frankivsk, Melitopol and Enerhodar city councils as well as PLEDDG consultants and experts shared their experience, successful cases, and the practice of applying investment instruments.

Moreover, the agenda of the training included a visit to Vinnytsia industrial park zones (Vinnytsia industrial park and Vinnytsia Cluster of Refrigeration Engineering), Green Cool Ltd, and the territory of the future Innovation and Krystal Technology Park.
