We cover expenses for one person per company. It is possible to send more participants; however, the travel expenses for more people have to be covered by the companies.

Why participate?: The Ukrainian textile industry is steadily growing when Norway is highly depended on the import of textile. Some important reasons to consider Ukraine for cooperation within clothes/textile production:

  • Free trade agreement between Ukraine and Norway,
  • It is not only cheap to produce clothes/textile in Ukraine but the already established Ukrainian brands are becoming more trendy in the world. Even Hollywood celebrities often prefer dresses made in Ukraine not only as daily attire but also for the red carpet! 
  • Ukraine has a broad network of international trade partners – 16 FTAs signed that cover 45 countries.

Deadline for registration: August 15th
