The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics signed agreements, protocols of intent and memoranda as part of the work of subpanels.

“Within the framework of subpanels, we studied the possibilities of applying advanced financial and information technologies in the economy of Donbass to ensure the protection of interests and rights of investors and minimize the adverse impact of politically occasioned factors. The idea is to create a flexible, simple, reliable, and maximally transparent investment model that fully meets the interests of business and the state.

Promising investment areas and industries have been determined during discussions within subpanels. From our speeches, we have heard concrete proposals, voiced by the guests and participants in the Forum, to increase the investment attractiveness of Donbass, which will form the basis for the formation of effective mechanisms of investment policy,” said Larisa Kostrovets, the moderator of the Donetsk International Investment Forum, Rector of Donetsk Academy of Management and Civil Service under the auspices of the Head of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
