Ukrainian SMEs to Cyprus June 2016

A group of 20 Ukrainian SMEs from agrifood, tourism and sustainable construction sectors had a business trip to Cyprus from 12 to 16 June 2016. The roadshow programme consisted of seminars, networking events, study visits and B2B meetings with the most prominent Cypriot companies interested in establishing business connections with the Ukrainian peers.

During the Roadshow, the Ukrainian SMEs had 9 study visits in four Cypriot cities, which enabled them to learn about the latest technology used in their sectors.

One of the study visits was organised at the largest meat processing factory in Cyprus. The representatives of the Ukrainian food industry became acquainted with the production facilities of the enterprise and the meat processing technology comprising the steps and procedures in the manufacture of processed meat products.

Besides that, the main infrastructure projects in Cyprus were shown to the Ukrainian businessmen. These projects presented big interest for the Ukrainian companies who expressed an arising willingness to be engaged in them. In addition, the experience of the Cypriot companies in the construction of sea ports in Cyprus was shared with the Ukrainian SMEs belonging to sustainable construction sector, which was highly appreciated by the participants.

In order to strengthen the collaboration and to facilitate the business dialogue between Cypriot and Ukrainian business communities, the Donetsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Larnaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which in turn will intensify trade and investment promotion activities between these countries.

The Roadshow aimed to promote Ukraine as an investment destination by highlighting the opportunities available for Cypriot companies across 3 economic sectors: Agrifood, Tourism and Sustainable construction and by underlining the reciprocal benefits of the business cooperation between two countries.

Roadshow partners were the Donetsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry on the Eastern Partnership side and the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce on the European side.

We are pleased to present to you the Catalogue of participating Ukrainian SMEs and kindly invite you to share their profiles further with your member companies if you believe this might generate interest among them.
