We recently launched a summative evaluation of the 5-year Canada-Ukraine Trade and Investment Support (CUTIS) Project, aiming to share results achieved by the project with key stakeholders, and enhance future possible programming in the economic growth sector by recommending how to strengthen the involvement of Ukrainian small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in trade and investment.
The CUTIS project, valued at $13.8M, and implemented by the Conference Board of Canada and the Canada-Ukraine Chamber of Commerce during 2016-2021 aimed to stimulate economic growth in Ukraine through the expansion of Ukrainian trade with Canada and the encouragement of Canadian investment in Ukraine. The project focused specifically on SMEs, including women-owned/operated businesses, in five trade sectors (Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), chocolate and confectionary, clothing, footwear and furniture), to help them take advantage of increased access to global value chains. It encourages Canadian companies to invest in Ukraine and link with Ukrainian SMEs and other suppliers through global value chains.
This project is financed by the Minister for International Development acting through the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development by the Canadian Embassy in Ukraine.
