The process of rebuilding Ukraine will define the entirety of Polish-Ukrainian economic relations many years ahead, according to Tetiana Khuzha business development manager at the Foreign Trade Office of the Polish Investment and Trade Agency (PAIH) in Kyiv, temporarily operating from Warsaw. PAIH maintains a database of Polish companies interested in taking part in this post-war venture. It currently includes some 1,700 Polish companies, of which about a third represent the construction sector. According to the Polish Economic Institute, they face enormous potential, as the value of projects to be carried out in Donbas alone will reach about $150-200 billion.
"The process of rebuilding Ukraine will be a very important factor that will determine the overall Polish-Ukrainian economic relations. We expect Poland to become a reconstruction hub, a place through which both Polish and foreign companies will operate, which will also benefit from the support, intermediation, and assistance of Polish businesses. According to the Polish Investment and Trade Agency, the reconstruction of Ukraine will be such a slogan that will define Polish-Ukrainian cooperation for many years to come," Tetiana Khuzha said.
