Ukrainian Transport Infrastructure Forum

October 15, 2013 @ 6:00 am - October 17, 2013 @ 3:00 pm

15 October 2013 to 16 October 2013

Venue: Intercontinental Hotel, Velyka Zhytomyrska St, 2, Kiev, Kyiv city, Ukraine, 01001

Adam Smith Conferences’ Ukrainian Transport Infrastructure Forum will address the issue of attracting investments for a badly-needed upgrade of Ukraine’s roads, railways, ports and airports. The government of this country of 46 million people has embarked on an ambitious programme to achieve this goal, which includes granting concessions to private operators and laying a foundation for PPP projects.

Ukraine’s big business is providing some shining examples of good management and innovation, but there is still vast scope for future projects. The event will be held in partnership with Ukraine’s Ministry of Infrastructure and will be attended by top managers from the largest state and privately-owned transport companies, Ukraine’s export-oriented companies, lawyers and consultants.

The Forum will feature:

  • an update on the progress of port reform, with a summary of the first results
  • the re-organisation of the state railway company, Ukrzaliznytsya, and the road agency, Ukravtodor; their strategies for attracting funding
  • case studies by private owners of transport infrastructure assets in Ukraine
  • the prospects for realising PPP infrastructure projects in Ukraine: what are the key features of the law on concessions?
  • presentations by Ukraine’s leading industrial groups and export-oriented companies with infrastructure assets: are they driving modernisation forward?
  • airports: prospects for concessions, development of regional airports, liberalising the market for airline operators
  • overseas experience of implementing infrastructure projects
