The global financial crisis continues to create new and everyday challenges for the government in Ukraine. The big question is 'Will Ukraine default"?
There are many western banks that cannot afford for Ukraine to default. Sometimes it appears that external interests are more concerned about the situation in Ukraine, than the leadership in Ukraine.
The crisis has really caught up with Ukraine and many businesses are in trouble. Many people have lost their jobs. The frustrating bit, is that the countrys leaders still appear to be more interested in fighting each other than with finding solutions to economic problems.
We will see what unfolds in the next few days.
How ever bad things are, we must always try to be positive and think towards the future with fresh hope. (Even if we cannot get our money out of the bank). Business will continue for those who can manage and implement a survival plan. We all know that in times of hardship, there will always be opportunities for some. So, the next BBCU meeting will be about how to do business with the British. We have some interesting speakers lined up to share their views on this subject.
If you can make it we hope to see you there: Thursday 26 March 2009 - Radisson SAS Hotel, Kyiv - 1900
