Dear colleague,
It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in our Webinar on Corporate Governance in State-Owned Enterprises in Ukraine, which takes place on Tuesday, 15th June at 14:00 GMT.
You can register free of charge for the Webinar here.
Ukraine has made great strides in raising levels of corporate governance in its State-Owned Enterprises. However, as very recently witnessed, it is often a case of two steps forward and one back.
We bring together a respected panel of experts, drawn from both the Management and Supervisory Boards of a number of Ukraine’s largest and most prominent State-Owned Enterprises to discuss how to ensure that corporate governance progress made to date is irreversible and that independent supervisory boards are able to do their work effectively and without interference. They include:

  • Yuliya Kovaliv, Deputy Chair of the Supervisory Board, Naftogaz Group
  • Artem Shevalev, Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory Board, PrivatBank and Ukrgasbank
  • Andriy Boytsun, Independent Corporate Governance Consultant
  • Olga Bielkova, Director, Government & International Affairs, Ukrainian Gas TSO
  • Sevki Acuner, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Ukrainian Railways & Ukrenergo
  • Roman Bondar, First Deputy CEO, Ukroboronprom
  • Artur Somov, Acting Chairman of the Management Board, UMCC Titanium

 They will address such key issues as:

  • What practical steps can be implemented to strengthen the role and status of independent supervisory boards?
  • How to ensure that SOE managers are accountable to their independent supervisory boards and not to officials and politicians
  • How far are Ukraine’s leading SOEs from reaching the required governance levels to undertake an international listing or to access the international bond markets?
  • Addressing the complicated legal framework which creates extensive bureaucracy and undermines the SOE’s ability to act in a timely and effective manner
  • Recruiting and motivating the best talent on the market and ensuring they are retained for the long-term.
