Ukrainian Banking Day in London
Leading Ukrainian bankers will come together with their UK and international counterparts for the Ukrainian Banking Day in London (http://strategy-council.com/en/events/26), which is taking place on 4th December at the Millennium Mayfair Hotel in London and is organised by Strategy Council of the UK in partnership with the Independent Association of Banks of Ukraine.
The Day has been convened to outline to the City of London the major changes which have taken place in the Ukrainian banking sector.
