On the sidelines of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky took part in the 'CEOs for Ukraine' meeting.

The Head of State informed the interlocutors of the economic growth of our country, which exceeded 5% in 2023, and optimistic forecasts for GDP growth for the current year.

The President emphasized that Ukraine restored its export capabilities thanks to the functioning of a grain corridor independent of Russia.

"We have created a parallel corridor and demonstrated that we can drive the Russian fleet out of the Black Sea. We have started transporting not only grain, but also other goods," the Head of State noted.

Volodymyr Zelensky emphasized that the Ukrainian authorities are making significant efforts to ensure protection against Russia's aerial terror.
