Wim Bosman Ukraine now member of EBA

Since April this year, Wim Bosman Ukraine has become a member of EBA (European Business Association), which is an important step in the development of our company inside Ukraine and beyond.

Established in 1999, the EBA organizes events such as forums, conferences, round tables, trainings and parties during which members can discuss and find solutions to common problems affecting business in Ukraine. This initiative was initially supported by the European Commission and has grown to become one of the largest and most influential business communities in the country.

The EBA organization provides opportunities for foreign companies which have branch offices in the Ukraine to meet each other at their events. These events take place every week  in various parts of Ukraine. The goal is to do business together and help each other succeed.

EBA is a very powerful organization in Ukraine which monitors elaboration of new legislation in Ukraine  in order to simplify different procedures, bring them in line with EU legislation and to protect the legitimate interests of their members.

Currently the EBA brings together about 900 European, Ukrainian and multinational companies to enjoy a broad scope of unique benefits and activities. The European Business Association has 5 regional offices in Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Lviv, Odessa and a representative office in Brussels operating as an independent body serving its members’ interests.
