Since 2014, Ukraine has experienced numerous internal and external challenges that continue to put pressure on the political, financial, and security situation in the country up to this day. While the overall condition of Ukraine and its economy has improved over the past two years, it is clear that more work needs to be done. 

The Atlantic Council will bring together top experts and policymakers to discuss the current economic situation and the most effective means for moving forward. The conference will consist of two panels that will address performance and prospects of Ukraine’s economy and will evaluate the overall progress of the ongoing reforms.

We hope you can join us this timely discussion.
