Ukraine is the largest country in Europe. The country is famous for its huge port system and railway network, which provide an excellent infrastructure for import / export. Many investors have settled in Ukraine, and for good reason, as there are still market niches where there is no competition. Investors use Ukrainian solutions mainly as a platform for importing grain, meat and other essential goods. Our clients complain about difficulties in running a business such as: bureaucracy, fiscalism, high taxes or corruption. In recent years, the country has made great progress in adapting the legal system and administration to the requirements of the modern business world. Ukraine also has the advantage of being located at the gates of Europe and Russia, with a competent and cheap labour force.
