Unilever Group's arrival in Ukraine confirms success of reforms
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has met with Head of British-Dutch Unilever Group Paul Polman in connection with the opening of a new factory in Hostomel.
The presidential press service said the Ukrainian president congratulated the Unilever Group management on the decision to come to the Ukrainian market and named this "the confirmation of success of the reforms, especially in fight against corruption, deregulation and the creation of an attractive investment climate."
"The coming of the British-Dutch investor to Ukraine is a good sign," the president said, adding this is the largest investment project of the company since its coming to the Ukrainian market.
Polman, in turn, noted he considers "it is very timely right now to invest in Ukraine as a potentially very attractive and promising market, which shows economic growth."
He also noted the coming of Unilever to Ukraine would be a good example of successful business for other companies at a global level, as well as a "signal of confidence in Ukrainian reforms."
