The British-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (BUCC), is pleased to invite you to the BUCC's Odessa Development Webinar, that is being held on 15 April 2021, at 3:30 pm Kyiv time / 1:30 pm London time, for 60 to 90 minutes. Its purpose is to present Odessa City and Odessa Region as an investment and trade destination. The working language is English (simultaneous translation will be provided).

Odessa city and its Region are located in the center of Southern Ukraine. The position on the Northern shore of the Black Sea, with five European transport corridors crossing the region, provides also access to the New Silk Road via the Black Sea link. The Odessa Region is a highly developed industrial region with machine-building, metal processing, chemical and petrochemical facilities, food and light industries. In 2019, the Odessa Region attracted USD 1,279.3 mln of foreign direct investment. 

This is a part of the BUCC's series of Webinars on Regional Development in Ukraine, which has been stimulated by the successful decentralization reform in Ukraine.

In October 2015, the BUCC held the Black Sea Economic Forum in Odessa, which inspired further investment into Odessa Region. There were over 500 high-level participants for that five-day Forum, making it the largest such event ever held by a chamber of commerce or business association in Ukraine.
