Japanese Business Federates and 2 Ministers Arrived in Kyiv

Representatives of the government apparatus and Keidanren will discuss investments in the restoration of Ukraine

On November 20, a delegation from Japan arrived in the capital of Ukraine. It includes the minister of economy, trade and industry Kazuchika Iwata, minister for foreign affairs Kiyoto Tsuji, as well as members of Keidanren — "the largest business lobby in Japan" (The Guardian). It is worth noticing that this year Japan is leading the G7 and is accumulating all opportunities to help Ukraine recover during and after the war, and Keidanren is organising the upcoming Ukraine Recovery conference in Tokyo.

The delegation will meet with the prime minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal and discuss issues important for Ukraine: budgetary tension, restoration of civil infrastructure, investment, business, etc.

"METI said the visit was an opportunity to hear about Ukraine’s needs and to discuss specific projects and accelerate public and private efforts to help," The Guardian.

We remind you that Ukraine Recovery Tokyo will be the 3rd conference in this format, and will take place on February 19.
