This delegation was led by the former Estonian Minister of Foreign Affairs Mr. Urmas Paet who is currently a member of the European Parliament.
During the Estonian –Ukrainian Business Forum which was arranged in Kiev on 22nd, both the Estonian and Ukrainian Chambers of Commerce were represented.
The biggest part of the forum was the discussion by Leinonen representatives of the introduction of new business and investment opportunities in the Ukraine and upcoming changes to the Ukrainian legislation related to taxation.
The delegates were given a chance to question Leinonen staff about the impending changes and how they are likely to affect international companies looking to make inroads into the vast source of opportunity present in Ukraine and how Leinonen will be able to assist with the setting up of new businesses.
This visit by the Estonian trade delegation was the first since the escalation of trouble in Kiev and along the eastern borders of the country.
It demonstrates that despite the trouble, international commerce is determined to find solutions and opportunities in a country rich in resources and innovation.
