USUBC members were very pleased to have the opportunity to host Marcin Swiecicki, who shared his insights about the plans and work of the Business Ombudsman Council - Ukraine to promote business development in Ukraine by assisting the business in resolving their issues and problems in doing business, mainly with government agencies.
During the meeting, Marcin Swiecicki did presentation about activities and successes of Ombudsman Council. “The ombudsman deals with businesses complaints against government agencies, intervenes on behalf of them and prepares systemic recommendations for the government” – said Marcin Swiecicki.
“When the US business has a problem they always think about US Commercial Service, Ombudsman Council and of course USUBC” - USUBC President Morgan Williams stressed during the meeting.
The Ombudsman’s objective is to facilitate fighting corruption, increase investment attractiveness of Ukraine and promote a public service culture characterized by fairness, openness and accountability. Combating corruption in Ukraine has become increasingly urgent because of the impact it is having on the willingness of companies to invest in the country. With setting up of Business Ombudsman Council, Ukraine has taken a major step forward towards the improvement of its investment climate. Business Ombudsman Council is meant to be the first point of contact for companies seeking redress against unfair treatment.
