Burisma joins the British-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce as a Patron

March 22, 2016

Burisma, the largest Independent gas producer with assets in Ukraine has become a patron member of the British-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (BUCC). The protocol for this was signed by BUCC Chairman Mr Bate C Toms and Advisor to the Board of Directors at Burisma Vadym Pozharskyi.

The British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce (BUCC) was originally established in 1997 to promote trade and investment between the United Kingdom and Ukraine. The BUCC draws its membership from Ukrainian, British and international companies, organizations and individuals. It helps to reach the broadest spectrum of government, business and society, both within Ukraine and abroad, to promote commerce and an understanding of business, commercial, trade and cultural matters between Ukraine, the UK and other countries and to address issues in the promotion of multilateral relationships.

In particular, the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce brings together British and international companies and individuals wishing to focus on the Ukrainian market, and offers assistance to Ukrainian companies and individuals wishing to establish business, commercial and trade relationships in the United Kingdom and worldwide.

«For almost two decades, the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce has been an important element in trade relations between the United Kingdom and the Ukraine, stimulating investment and the convergence of two of the largest markets in Europe with a combined population of over 100 million people. The fact that Burisma, the leading investor in Ukraine’s oil & gas industry, is joining us today, speaks of the substantial support from the UK for Ukraine to become energy-independent, and Burisma Holdings’ role in achieving this goal, as the largest private natural gas producer in the country “, said the Chairman of the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce Mr Bate C Toms.

According to Vadym Pozharskyi, the British-Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce is an important instrument and a discussion platform that helps businesses communicate their expectations and concrete proposals to governments of both countries, as well as to increase trade between the UK and Ukraine.

“British investors should be aware of the changes taking place in Ukraine. Every day we need to inform the international business community that Ukraine continues to reform its energy sector in line with European values ​​and standards. Everyone understands that the reform process is not over yet, and a lot remains to be done, though much progress has been made recently. Transparency, predictability and the rule of law are essential for business. The same rules should apply for everyone, regardless of whether it is a British or a Ukrainian company. Unfinished reforms will no longer meet the expectations of the Ukrainian business. We are confident that the members of the British Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce will join us in this process “, noted Vadym Pozharskyi.
