"Our goal is to show the new government and connect directly with key investors," Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine Aivaras Abromavicius said at a briefing on Thursday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.
Apart from that, no other forecasts were made by Abromavicius as to the Forum's outcomes. The minister noted that involving a potential investor might take some time.
