London, 10 December 2021 - Despite growing geopolitical tensions and economic pressure created by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, investors remain cautiously optimistic in Ukraine’s economy.

A strong policy response from the National Bank of Ukraine and activity from the Ministry of Finance has resulted in investor confidence in the Ukrainian economy remaining cautiously high.
