WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The Bleyzer Foundation (TBF), a member of the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC), Washington, D.C.,, has been monitoring the adequacy of Ukraine’s investment climate through periodic surveys. The Bleyzer Foundation greatly values the contribution of the members of the U.S Ukraine Business Council to the 2016 survey, and believe that this collaboration will help to improve the investment and business climate in Ukraine. 

Based on the 2016 Investment Climate Survey's final results, a detailed report with graphics was prepared by Julia Segura of The Bleyzer Foundation (TBF). The complete Investment Climate Survey 2016 report can be found in the attachment to this e-mail. 

The summary chart and table below show that the major concerns of many companies operating in Ukraine about the country’s investment climate and business environment are deficiencies in the (1) Legal and Judiciary Environment, (2) Corruption and (3) Financial Sector Inadequacies. These three “investment drivers” were considered to be severe/serious/moderate problems by 93% to 96% of the survey respondents.
