Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused enormous damage to infrastructure, services, and government systems in Ukraine. The international community, including Multilateral Development Banks working with the Government of Ukraine, is providing emergency assistance to restore services and repair damaged infrastructure. The international community is also planning for the reconstruction of Ukraine, which will require massive financial assistance. Procurement of goods, works, and services is critical to the reconstruction program.

The planned Business Outreach Workshop is intended to enable the international business community to participate more effectively in opportunities created through Government and donor-funded projects in Ukraine. Further, it aims to provide information on the business opportunities in the emergency assistance and reconstruction program.

During the workshop the following information will be presented:

  • Brief overview of the World Bank portfolio in Ukraine;
  • Information about the Ukraine Relief, Recovery, Reconstruction and Reform Trust Fund (URTF) and the relief projects it supports;
  • Procurement rules and procedures of Ukraine and the World Bank;
  • Tips for preparing acceptable bids and proposals;
  • Mechanism for resolving bidders’ complaints;
  • Briefing on the Government e-procurement system ”Prozorro” – key upgrading done to facilitate participation of bidders; and
  • Challenges to foresee in participation and execution of contracts due to the situation prevailing in Ukraine.
