  • IER launches project "Ukraine Path to the European Union. Polish Accession Experience"


    The Institute for Economic Research and Policy Consulting, in cooperation with the Warsaw Enterprise Institute (WEI), is launching the project "Ukraine Path to the European Union. Polish Accession Experience". The main goal of the project is to support the preparation of Ukraine and Ukrainian entrepreneurs for future membership in the European Union by analyzing the experience of Polish entrepreneurs in working in European markets and Ukraine's current integration efforts, in particular through the instruments of the Association Agreement.

    In the project, we will highlight the opportunities and challenges faced by the Ukrainian economy in connection with joining the EU, the need to adapt to the requirements of a free market economy, and the prospects for cooperation between Polish and Ukrainian entrepreneurs in the common European market. We will focus on sensitive sectors of the economy, which, on the one hand, may pose significant challenges as potential areas of competition and disputes between Polish and Ukrainian entrepreneurs, and on the other hand, discuss those areas which may become a place of cooperation and mutual complementarity between our economies, such as:

    • energy;
    • food and agriculture;
    • transportation and logistics;
    • pharmacy and medical devices;
    • construction and building materials;
    • timber and furniture industry.

    The main target group of the project will be Ukrainian and Polish entrepreneurs and their associations. They will be able to realize the complexity of Ukraine's accession process and the challenges facing the public authorities of both countries, European institutions, as well as Polish and Ukrainian entrepreneurs. Ukraine's accession to the European Union and the opening of the flow of people, services and capital will change the economic and political face of Europe. The basis for excellent and beneficial cooperation should be awareness of the challenges and proper preparation for this process.
