EU4BUSINESS IN UKRAINE

SMEs provide work for more than 4 million people in Ukraine, generate about 20% of the country’s GDP and make up the majority of the country’s companies.  The business environment in Ukraine is highly regulated but standards, support services for SMEs, innovation policy and assistance for women entrepreneurs need to be improved to allow SMEs to really thrive.

EU4Business aims to improve the country’s business climate. It makes it easier for SMEs to get finance and provides training and targeted support for businesses led by women and those working in the green economy. SMEs also get technical support to help them align with EU standards, increase exports and benefit from the free trade deal between Ukraine and EU.
