...Economics. Two new members were appointed to the Board of Directors of Kyiv School of Economics during the annual Board of Directors meeting – Makar Paseniuk, founder of the ICU Group, and Oleksandr Kravchenko, partner at McKinsey & Company.
...says Makar Paseniuk, ICU. Favourable financial markets and positive investor perceptions of macroeconomic and political stability provide Ukraine with good opportunities to accelerate economic growth commented Makar Paseniuk, founding partner at ICU. He added that against the backdrop of the changing international trade landscape, the toolbox of growth stimulation measures and a relatively low base of GDP, the country is able to boost growth, strengthen its competitive position and occupy new market niches. However, Makar Paseniuk stressed that in order to stimulate sustainable growth, the country needs to intensify its efforts to attract foreign direct investment.
