The most ambitious cooperation agreements – Ambassador spoke about the prospects of partnership with Japan on Ukraine’s reconstruction efforts

The upcoming conference, scheduled for February 19-20, which will take place in Japan, aims to highlight the importance and promote Ukraine’s economic recovery. The event reparations are currently underway. It’s poised to be the largest bilateral action between the governments of Ukraine and Japan, as well as between the countries’ businesses, over the past five years. The conference sets the stage for signing intergovernmental agreements in the economic realm, as well as memorandums on interagency cooperation targeting various sectors and priority areas. 

Sergiy Korsunsky, Ukraine’s Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to Japan, said this during a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine – Ukrinform. 

“As for the documents, we intend to sign one or two intergovernmental support agreements in the economic sector, which are still being finalized. There will also be a number of memorandums between the companies on the collaborative efforts. They will cover industry, energy, agriculture, and transportation, addressing the potential challenges posed by Ukraine’s economic rejuvenation and territory’s recovery. There is a part that requires immediate incorporation, and its implementation is currently up and running, its progress will just be announced de jure at the conference session. The main goal is to enhance the synergy of future cooperation, in which we hope that Ukraine will adopt the best practices of Japan’s outstanding experience, an absolutely unique experience on a global scale since no other country has rebuilt itself so many times in recent years after either World War II or large-scale earthquakes. We would like to see it very much,” said Sergiy Korsunsky.

Ahead of the event, starting next week, a series of conferences will be held to underscore a dialogue between the countries’ businesses on Ukraine’s recovery. In addition to business representatives, the events will be attended by mayors of Ukrainian cities and representatives of municipalities affected by Russian aggression.
