The visit of the parliamentary of Ukraine Alexander Feldman to PRC has started today. The first day in China was full of positive contacts and new ideas.
The main event within development of cooperation between Ukraine and China was the investment seminar “Investment in Ukraine” that took place on August 9 in Shanghai. The investment seminar was organized by the "China Council for Promotion of International Trade" (CCPIT) under the support of the General Consul of Ukraine in the PRC Sergey Burdulyak and Ukrainian politician Alexander Feldman. The seminar was attended by the representatives of 25 state organizations and large companies of China.
The speakers at the seminar were the General Consul of Ukraine in China, Ukrainian parliamentary Oleksandr Feldman, CEO of Huawei Ukraine Mr. XU Jie and the Head of the Supervisory board of AVEC Group of companies Aleksey Chernyshov.
“I have a very good and encouraging feeling from this seminar, – Alexander Feldman shares his impressions. – The Chinese are very active and open to dialogue, they are interested in details and nuances of the investment opportunities in Ukraine and it is obvious that they are interested in active development of cooperation between our countries.
It’s pleasant to see how the meetings of the Presidents of Ukraine and China and the cooperation of the governments of our countries have increased the loyalty of Chinese people towards the Ukraine. The declaration on the establishment and development of strategic partnership between Ukraine and China, signed by the Presidents in June 2011, now takes the form of specific positive economic actions.
In my report on the investment seminar I tried to bring understanding to Chinese colleagues that our cooperation has huge potential, and that Ukrainian economy is open to Chinese investments. I feel that I was heard and was taken positively. I am very glad that the Chinese partners are interested first of all in infrastructural projects and the projects that promote entrepreneurship.
Several remarkable ideas appeared directly during the discussion: Ukrainian-Chinese project "Children's Diplomacy" under which Ukrainian children will go to China and Chinese children will visit Ukraine, the project of the “exchange” of students of economic specialties of Ukraine and China, and the project of establishment of a Ukrainian-Chinese centers of entrepreneurship. I think that such real steps toward each other are able to practically strengthen cooperation and increase mutual understanding at the level of our citizens."
During the day the working meetings of Ukrainian delegation with the representatives of Shanghai Chamber of Commerce and business circles of China were also taken place. The possibilities of investments of Chinese enterprises in the Ukrainian infrastructural projects were discussed during the meetings.
