According to Julia Tur, this year at MIPIM Kyiv was awarded two honorary awards. “The capital has entered the TOP-10 cities of the world on the return on budget investment. This assessment of investment attractiveness was received at the annual fDi Location Awards competition by the Foreign Direct Investment Magazine (the Financial Times). Kyiv also awarded for reducing bureaucracy, “- she said.
