On 1st March 2017, an exclusive business forum was held at the Palazzo Ca 'Vendramin, owned by the municipality of Venice, to present concrete business opportunities for Veneto enterprises in Ukraine, considering the country's integration in Europe, with the illustration of specific cases of North East companies that are successful in the Ukrainian territory.
The event was organized by the Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Padova Marco Toson, sponsored by the municipality of Venice and with the collaboration of the Ambassador of Ukraine in Italy Yevhen Perelygin and Banca Intermobiliaredi Investimenti e Gestioni, and saw the active participation of more than 140 people, entrepreneurs and institutions.
The meeting began in the enchanting surroundings with a warm welcome from the CEO to the Security Enrico Gavagnin, and saw important speeches held by the Deputy Mayor of Venice Luciana Colle, the Deputy President of the Regional Council Bruno Pigozzo, the Ambassador Yevhen Perelygin and the Consul Marco Toson. Then, various companies already in Ukraine told about their collaboration and experience in fashion, Medical and Food & Wine fields. At the end, many projects were introduced including European Funds and Management Courses funded for training and internationalization of companies towards the Eastern markets, led by Diego Cancian, the European Funds Consultant .
After the event, the Ambassador of Ukraine in Italy Yevhen Perelygin, together with the Honorary Consul of Ukraine in Padova Marco Toson, made themselves available to personally meet all participants interested in more information for future collaborative projects with Ukraine.
The event was a great success, and bears witness to an increasingly concrete approach between the two realities Italy - Ukraine. There was a very positive feedback thanks to the numerous subscriptions of the participants to the courses of internationalization of companies and the interest shown for this reality at the end of the event.
