COVID-19 lockdowns and resulting economic downturn disrupted the M&A deal-making globally and Ukraine is no exception. What will international and domestic investors do in the aftermath: suspend investments into the country or double down on them? Is the investment climate in Ukraine sufficiently benign today? Are export-related industries the right investment destination? Ukraine needs more exports to create jobs in Ukraine and to produce hard currency. Will and how export grow and support the Ukrainian economy at large in these difficult times? Will Ukraine become a new affordable and reliable European production and logistic hub for global corporates willing to diversify away from East Asia?
