JCC Ukraine Infrastructure Roundtable: Continuing the URC 2022 Discussion

Infrastructure (transportation, energy, urban)  in Ukraine: Planning for Reconstruction”
December 7, 2022  15:00-19:00

Venue: MAN Energy Solutions, Hardstrasse 319, 8005 Zurich

The Ukraine Recovery Conference that took place on July 4-5, 2022 in Lugano, Switzerland set the stage for post-war reconstruction of Ukraine’s energy, infrastructure and manufacturing sectors. A joint assessment by the Government of Ukraine, the European Commission, and the World Bank, in cooperation with partners released in mid-September 2022, estimated that the cost of reconstruction and recovery in Ukraine amounts to $349 billion. This figure is expected to grow in the coming months as Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine continues.

The Government of Ukraine is looking at the specific needs across the different regions this winter and beyond. Based on the highest priorities, tailored recovery and reconstruction plans are being developed to guide a program in each area. There will be a need for future assessments of damage, loss and reconstruction/recovery needs in Ukraine for which the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) has committed financial support.

There is a lot of expertise that Swiss companies can bring to the reconstruction process, especially in the areas of transportation, energy and urban infrastructure (which includes building construction, water supply and waste management). The JCC Ukraine Infrastructure Roundtable is a next step post-Lugano where we will consider the Ukrainian Government’s priorities for reconstruction and how Swiss companies can get their foot in the door on specific projects.

FUNDRAISER: Generators for Ukraine this Winter

JCC’s Ukraine Infrastructure Roundtable on December 7, 2022 in Zurich is an opportunity for JCC in partnership with the Mriya Ukraïna Charitable Association (founded by JCC Vice President Iurie Moraru), to put our efforts together and raise funds to buy generators for hospitals, community centers and households in Ukraine this winter. With its well-established logistic channels and contact network in Ukraine, Mryia Ukraïna will deliver the generators to the people who need them most.  Please either donate a generator or make a financial contribution which Mriya Ukraïna will use to buy a generator. At the Ukraine Infrastructure Roundtable we will announce the winners and award them their prizes.
