On 21-22 June 2023, the UK jointly with Ukraine will host the international Ukraine Recovery Conference (URC 2023) in London
The Ukraine Recovery Conference 2023, to be held jointly by the UK and Ukraine in London in June, is a continuation of the cycle of annual events with the last one conducted jointly with Switzerland in Lugano.
The previous edition of the conference, held for the first time during the ongoing Russian aggression against Ukraine, launched the Lugano Principles, which laid the foundation for the reconstruction process of Ukraine and united the world in its efforts.
Since Lugano, the international community has pledged significant emergency assistance, but a broader mobilisation of public and private sectors is needed to meet the scale of stabilisation and recovery needs Ukraine requires following russian attacks. Ukraine has already undertaken initiatives to move forward with reconstruction in line with these principles and commitments, despite the circumstances of war.
The Ukraine Recovery Conference is dedicated to Ukraine's transformation and was symbolically launched in London in 2017 as the Ukraine Reform Conference.
URC 2023 Goal
URC 2023 will focus on mobilising international support for Ukraine's economic and social stabilisation and recovery from the effects of war, including through emergency assistance for immediate needs and financing private sector participation in the reconstruction process.
URC expects the broad participation of the international community, international financial institutions, the private sector and civil society to mobilise support for Ukraine.
URC is keen to see the private sector play a leading role by applying its expertise and supporting Ukraine's recovery, and invite investors to consider specific sectors and opportunities. To support this, Ukraine continues to implement an ambitious reform agenda and look for ways to support investment in Ukraine and reduce risk.
Please note that the number of conference visitors is limited for security reasons. Participation in the conference is only possible if an invitation has been received from the host. Further information on the conference programme will be published shortly before the date of the event.
