Ukraine's government speaks out in favour of hosting the Ukrainian-Arab economic forum, designed to promote trade cooperation with the Arab world countries and attract Arab business to privatize state-owned enterprises in Ukraine.

Volodymyr Groysman, Ukraine's Prime-Minister, discussed it with the heads of Arab embassies accredited in Kyiv.

The ambassadors of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Morocco, Sudan, Libya, Algeria, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Palestine confirmed the interest of Arab businessmen to invest into Ukraine and highly appraised the Ukrainian government's efforts in making reforms.

Ukraine's PM invited representatives of Arab countries to take part in the second auction of privatizing Odesa Port-Side Chemical Plant. The first round of the auction failed to happen due to the lack of bids.

"It is important for us. We want a publicly-open privatization for Ukraine", Groysman said.

The head of the government stated Ukraine and the Arab world countries have a lot of opportunities to develop both bilateral and regional cooperation in such economic sectors as energy, education, agriculture, IT and infrastructure development.

"Ukraine's government is interested to open our country to your countries, your business, investments, and to intensify our trade relations", Groysman declared.
