Victor Pinchuk Foundation and EastOne to Host Davos Ukrainian Breakfast on January 25, 2018
On January 25, 2018 in Davos (Switzerland), the Victor Pinchuk Foundation and international investment advisory group EastOne will hold the annual Davos Ukrainian Breakfast, their traditional private event organized at the occasion of the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
The event will feature a keynote speech and discussion with the President of Ukraine, H.E. Petro Poroshenko. Also among the speakers will be Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada and David Lipton, First Deputy Managing Director of IMF, Wolfgang Ischinger, Chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Alexander Kwasniewski, President of Poland (1995-2005), and Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Secretary General of NATO (2009-2014), Prime Minister of Denmark (2001-2009). Fareed Zakaria, host of Zakaria GPS on CNN, will moderate the discussion.
The major discussion of this year’s Davos Ukrainian Breakfast is related to the main topic of the 48th WEF Annual Meeting, Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World. It is in this very context that Ukraine will be debated over: investments, reform, achievements, issues, challenges and other questions. The world is changing, and it is facing major challenges. Despite certain success in the reform, Ukraine still has lots to do. Where is Ukraine heading in the changing environment? How can international partners support Ukraine in its struggle for territorial integrity, freedom and building up a country that is founded on the European values? What can international partners learn from Ukraine’s experience?
Leaders from politics, business, civil society and the media from Ukraine and the world will attend the event. The Ukrainian event at Davos has been organized annually since 2005 to promote Ukraine and bring Ukrainian and international leaders together.
In addition to Davos Ukrainian Breakfast the Victor Pinchuk Foundation together with other partners, Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF) and the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (UVCA), organized the Ukraine House, which operates in Davos January 22-26, 2018.
