Since his election last year, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his government have pledged to transform and energize Ukraine’s economy, promising to bring in $50 billion in foreign direct investment and aiming for 40 percent GDP growth in five years. Those pledges have not been realized. So one year on, where did Zelenskyy’s government push the reform needle forward? And what should the government’s top priorities be in the coming year?

Tymofiy Mylovanov, Ukraine’s former minister of economic development, trade and agriculture, joins Adrian Karatnycky, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center and managing partner at Myrmidon Group LLC, and Dr. Anders Åslund, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Eurasia Center.
