Alexandr Shchur, a Member of Ukreximbank’s Management Board, participated in the Central and Eastern European Forum held in Vienna on 15–17 January 2024. The Forum, organised by Euromoney Conferences, is well established as the most important gathering for financial market participants interested in the CEE region. For 29 years, it has brought together over 1,000 issuers, investors, intermediaries, and policymakers from CEE and beyond to network, gain valuable insights, and help set the agenda for the year ahead.

During the keynote focus session titled “Rebuilding Ukraine: The War Economy,” Alexandr Shchur emphasised that supporting critical sectors of the economy is a cornerstone of Ukeximbank’s strategy during martial law. The Bank continues to expand cooperation with IFIs, attracting funds within existing agreements and forging new ones for additional financing for more than USD 200 million with The World Bank Treasury (IBRD • IDA), EBRD and European Investment Bank (EIB).

Discussing the support for Ukrainian exports, Mr Shchur highlighted, “Supporting exporters during the war remains an important priority for the Bank. In 2022–2023, the Bank provided financing to over 100 exporters for more than UAH 12 billion. Moreover, the Bank actively participates in an important state project to reinstate war risk insurance for ships, within the framework of which the Bank recently issued a letter of credit for USD 10 million at the request of the the Ukrainian ECA.”

The Bank also actively participates in all government initiatives to support the Ukrainian economy and post-war recovery. Under the rebuilding projects, Ukreximbank actively offers its agent services to international granters and creditors to ensure smooth implementation and transparency.
