Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s official visit to the UK in early October 2020 took UK-Ukraine cooperation to a new and much higher level and provided a special basis for bilateral trade and investment after the Brexit transition period ended on 31 December 2020. The British-Ukrainian Political, Free Trade, and Strategic Partnership Agreement, which was signed between Boris Johnson and Volodymyr Zelenskyy on 8 October 2020, is backed by a huge GBP 2.5 billion Export Credit Facility (“UKEF Facility”) managed by UK Export Finance (UKEF).
The BUCC’s members and friends should be interested in increasing their British-Ukrainian trade and investment when they learn details about this extraordinary new UKEF Facility. The BUCC is focused for 2021 on increasing British-Ukrainian trade and investment, for which we have launched a series of webinars starting with this event.
The terms for the UKEF’s export credits are very advantageous for trade and investment in Ukraine, including to support loans for up to 10 years with three-year grace periods and preferential interest rates. The requirement for only 20% UK content is much less restrictive than for the export credits offered by most other countries.
During the Webinar, you will learn about UKEF and how it helps exporters with their trade and investment in Ukraine, what types of projects UKEF supports, how you can apply for UKEF credit support, and how projects can be financially structured including to support investment. UKEF will discuss examples of projects they have successfully funded previously, etc. BUCC Members will be able to pose questions during the Q&A session on a priority basis.
