KYIV, Ukraine, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - Ukraine was named one of the world's
five most promising economies by the member of the U.S. House of
Representatives Michael Grimm. The congressman made this statement on
November 7, 2011, while speaking at the investment conference "Ukraine:
The Best Investment Opportunities" in New York. The republican
politician noted that the growth of the GDP of Ukraine is steady and
faster than that of the US and the EU.
According to American politician, the upcoming Free Trade Agreement with
the EU is an important contributing factor to the advantages investment
in Ukraine may bring. Michael Grimm reminded that the expected growth
of Ukraine's GDP in 2011 is set at the solid 5.1 percent.
The republican Michael Grimm believes that the energy industry of
Ukraine, its agriculture, as well as tourism and infrastructure may
offer a sound base for any future partnership. According to the U.S.
Congressman, Ukraine's gas resources provide an opportunity to
alleviate the world's dependency on oil and give Ukraine a chance to
become one of the top players in, say, a decade.
Michael Grimm listed Ukraine as a country with one of the most
progressive economies along with China, India, and Singapore. He
considers that the US needs to pay closer attention to Ukraine as there
is plenty of potential for cooperation. The partnership between the two
countries would only be a natural development, said Congressman Grimm.
He mentioned that "there are benefits to deepening our economic ties.
With Europe poised to enact a historic Free Trade Agreement with
Ukraine, we don't want to be left behind."
The investment conference "Ukraine: The Best Investment Opportunities"
takes place in the United States on November 7-10 2011. The organizers
of the road-show are the State Agency for Investment and National
