Economic Affairs

The Economic Section’s primary goal is to build a strong bilateral economic relationship with Ukraine through negotiating government-to-government agreements, facilitating technical assistance opportunities, promoting U.S. trade and investment, and ensuring compliance with completed agreements.

In addition, the Section reports on the pace and nature of economic, energy, health, science and technology, cybersecurity, labor, banking, trade, intellectual property rights, infrastructure and agricultural reform; key leaders; institutions; and the social acceptance of these changes. These reports provide raw and analyzed performance data to Washington.

Finally, as part of mission-wide policy and an effort to instill a welcoming atmosphere, the Section provides information and support to USG visitors on an ongoing basis.
