Sweden leading government and commercial organizations including Embassy of Sweden in Ukraine, Swedish Trade Council, Swedbank representatives in Ukraine, and Sigma are involved in the event preparation.

During this collaborative visit, Swedish companies already working in Ukraine will share their experience with their Swedish colleagues who want to enter Ukrainian market. The growing interest towards Ukrainian market results in a significant number of participants since during this visit over 50 Swedish companies will introduce their products and services to Ukrainian market.

Cooperation is to be promoted first in four major directions:

  • Biomedicine and ecology;
  • Energy;
  • IT-related solutions and services (Telecommunications and Banking);
  • Manufacturing.

According to both Swedish and Ukrainian experts, these four directions are of major interest as a solid cooperation platform for Sweden and Ukraine.

Being among the companies involved in the visit preparation, Sigma will moderate IT-related Solutions and Services section during the forthcoming conference.

The IT workshop, conducted by Sigma at the section, will give the participants an opportunity to exchange their visions of choosing the optimal IT strategy when expanding to Ukrainian market. This workshop will be moderated by Sigma management board member Carl Vikingsson who will visit Ukraine for this purpose.

Mr. Vikingsson will also speak at panel discussion “Swedish experience of doing business in Ukraine” sharing his ideas and experience regarding the issue.
