Economic front and international cooperation

It is critically important to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as to support Ukrainian businesses. The economic front should not only fill the budget and provide jobs during the war but also will be responsible for rebuilding the country after the Victory and it requires intensive development, expanding the geography of work and international cooperation. 

For this purpose, on May 10, 2022, the Ukrainian-Czech Chamber of Commerce (UKRCHAM) was created, and Petr Krogman, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Agromino, was elected as its president.

UKRCHAM is a non-governmental, non-political and non-profit organization. Its goal is comprehensive support of business relations between the Czech Republic and Ukraine. 100 international companies have become members of UKRCHAM to make Ukrainian-Czech cooperation even more productive and expand the range of business opportunities.

On August 24, 2022, UKRCHAM, with the support of the leading economic magazine Hospodářské noviny, organized a meeting of businessmen from both countries in honor of the Independence Day of Ukraine. “We want to connect entrepreneurs and inspire other Czech companies to enter the Ukrainian market. And at the same time, we would like to thank those who have made a significant contribution to support of Ukraine over the past six months,” said Petr Krogman, President of UKRCHAM.
