Anders Sammuelsen: “We support Ukraine in its reform efforts – also by stressing that still more needs to be done”

The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Anders Samuelsen, will be hosting – together with his Ukrainian colleague – a big international Ukraine Reform Conference in Copenhagen on 27 June 2018. Today in Kiev, the foreign ministers signed the formal invitations to the Conference in Copenhagen. Foreign Ministers from EU-, NATO- and G7-countries as well as high-level representatives from international organisations will be invited.

“I have high expectations to the Ukraine Reform Conference in Copenhagen and I look forward to once again hos a big and important event in Copenhagen. A more modern and European-oriented Ukraine is emerging these years. Together with our international partners, we have to support this development and at the same time continuously stress the need for further progress in the reform process, especially in the fight against corruption. I have encouraged the Ukrainian Government to take advantage of the Conference as a ‘driver for change’ to speed up the reform processes in the coming months,” Anders Samuelsen says.

The Conference in Copenhagen will bring together 250 people and build on the success of the first international Ukraine Reform Conference last year in London.
