In an interview for the special July issue of Business Ukraine magazine "Investing in Mykolaiv", Danyil Bilak, a director of the UkraineInvest, shared his thoughts about the decentralization process and prospects of the city of Mykolaiv.
Ukraine is a vast country with diverse regional potential. Investment promotion office UkraineInvest has witnessed a tendency among investors to form clusters in certain key economic sectors and in certain investment-attractive regions.
As the country continues to shake off the legacy of Soviet bureaucracy, certain cities and regions have transformed more quickly than others to compete for foreign investment. Mykolaiv city and the greater Mykolaiv region is one of the areas that has risen to the top of the list that foreign investors are considering. Mykolaiv Mayor Oleksandr Seynkevych and the Head of the Mykolaiv Regional State Administration, Alexey Savchenko, have made great strides to leverage the clusters in their region and to use all the tools they have available in an impressive effort to make Mykolaiv an increasingly attractive destination.
What does the future hold for Mykolaiv? The path for business has already been paved. The host of opportunities in agribusiness as well as IT, shipbuilding, river and seaport transportation speak to the attractiveness of Mykolaiv as a base for companies doing business in Ukraine now and well into the future.
