The support, financial or in kind, “should arrive in Ukraine before mid-March“, added the presidency, insisting on the “observation that we lacked a coordination mechanism for emergency aid” to identify Ukrainian needs and know in real time which country is offering which aid. Around the table: 47 countries, therefore, but also the Secretary General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will intervene by video- The International Monetary Fund (IMF) will be there, as will the World Bank through regional officials.
Second stage: in the afternoon, at the Ministry of Finance. The event will have a more bilateral turn since some 500 French companies – from the CAC 40 to digital start-ups – will be invited for an exchange this time focused on the long term. After a new speech by the Ukrainian President and a speech by Emmanuel Macron on site in the presence of Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Chmyhal, round tables will discuss the infrastructure, technology and digital, health, energy and agri-food sectors. The Crédit Agricole, Alstom, Enedis, Atos, Sanofi, Lactalis groups and the Station F incubator will notably be present on Tuesday, as well as the Medef and the Franco-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce.
