Outlook Ukraine: Perspectives, Rebuilding & Financing

  • Middelthuns gate 27, 0368 Oslo
  • 30.01.2023
  • 09:00 - 11:00

Together with the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprises (NHO), the Norwegian-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (NUCC) wishes to explore the current situation in Ukraine, and further investigate which possibilities lie ahead for the future.

The aim of the conference is to initiate Norwegian talks on how the private sector can partake in the Ukrainian rebuilding efforts and continue to support the country, together with international, domestic, and public support. Despite the ongoing war and continued destruction of Ukrainian infrastructure, housing, and institutions, Ukraine looks forward. It is not too early for Norway to do the same.

Date: January 30th, 2023, from 9:00 till 11:00
Place: Næringslivets Hus (Middelthuns gate 27, 0368 Oslo)
