The organization of so-called houses in Davos is a well-established tradition for the progressive countries of the world. For the second year in a row, Ukraine is organizing its own networking platform in Davos, that represents the country and creates opportunities for investment agreements and development of international partnerships. Aspen Institute Kyiv, the mission of which is to promote a culture of dialogue and create opportunities for the exchange of ideas, actively supports this project, because we truly believe it is an important and significant step for the image of Ukraine in the world.
