ICC’s Centre of Entrepreneurship in Ukraine has announced a partnership with DHL to enhance the cross-border trade potential of Ukrainian small- and medium-sized enterprises.

The CoE Ukraine will implement the DHLgoTrade programme in Ukraine to provide capacity-building for SMEs in the region and build resilience of Ukrainian businesses.

Launching under the Ukraine CoE’s cross-border trade stream, the programme is in line with objectives set out in ICC’s five-point plan to support Ukraine’s private sector and build resilience through trade and supply chain inclusion.

Comprising 13 modules, the training aims to raise awareness of modern terms and conditions in international trade and shipments, customs and compliance, e-commerce, and to improve business skills needed to boost Ukrainian SME exports. In its first phase, the programme will train up to 100 SMEs as well as representatives from regional chambers of commerce.

Enabling Ukraine’s private sector

Interested SMEs are invited to sign up here for the programme which launches on 7 June 2023.

ICC’s CoE Ukraine recently hosted an informative session with 25 heads of regional chambers and employees of the Ukraine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (UCCI) system responsible for export consultancy services.

UCCI President Gennadiy Chyzhykov will discuss trade as an enabler of political stability during a session of the upcoming 13th World Chambers Congress in Geneva which is open to SMEs. Mr Chzhykov will be joined by Ukraine Deputy Minister of Economy Taras Kachka and the session will be moderated by ICC Secretary General John W.H. Denton AO.
