In course of two months Ukrainian volunteers will search for Ukrainian businessmen, investors and artists to represent our country at this year’s world exhibition Expo 2015 in Milan.
This year Ukrainian representatives will not have state funding. Ukraine refused to participate due to unstable situation in country and lack of investments to build its own pavilion at exhibition.
This year volunteer took responsibility for organization of Ukrainian participation in Expo. ‘Events in Ukraine are not reasons to stop development of national business and art’, – says volunteer Iryna Tereshchenko.
Ukrainian volunteers plan to represent Ukraine in two formats.
According to businessman Sergiy Marchuk, the first format is participation of UA agro-business. The second format is free participation of Ukrainian chefs at one of exhibition pavilions.
The businessman believes that Ukrainian participation in Expo 2015 is one more chance to reach the international level and attract world investments.
The problem is lack of interest among Ukrainian businessmen.
‘Only few companies have agreed to participate in exhibition so far. However, there are not enough funds to represent Ukraine ‘, – the businessman said.
This year is the first time when volunteers have decided to organize not only presentation of business sector. They also want to involve famous artists, singers and directors.
‘The idea is that every visitor would have the opportunity to learn about Ukrainian talents. In particular, we plan to make the first 3D film about Ukraine’, – says volunteer, founder of charitable foundation ‘Art rear’ Tetyana Jafarova.
Presentation of Ukrainian pavilion will take place in August-September 2015 in Milan.
