The invasion of Ukraine has led to significant international efforts to assist the country in its recovery and ensure long-term stability. The international community recognizes Ukraine's need for support in its post-war reconstruction and economic recovery. Recently, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), has approved a new Extended Fund Facility (EFF) arrangement of SDR 11.6 billion (about $15.6 billion) as part of a comprehensive $115 billion support package, providing a groundwork for a solid economic foundation and ensures Ukraine's resilience.
This event featured discussions on the goals of the IMF's New Extended Fund Facility for Ukraine, as well as a presentation by Dmytro Boyarchuk on the main messages of the latest CASE report 'Economic Priorities in Post-war Ukraine’.
The speakers addressed the key priorities such as improving the rule of law, protecting property rights, and fostering private sector competition as these measures are vital for reducing Russian influence and strengthening Ukraine's economic independence.
