Ukraine’s Ambassador thanked the Governor for his personal contribution to the development of Ukraine-U.S. cooperation and assistance to our country in the security sphere, in particular, California National Guard training for Ukrainian National Guard and Armed Forces.
Governor Brown was pleased to note his visit to Ukraine in July 2016 and expressed his readiness to render further support to the implementation of the bilateral programs.
Ambassador Chaly said that given ongoing Russian aggression in the East of our country, Ukraine counts upon the solidarity of its international partners and is interested in receiving effective support.
Sides also discussed available potential for economic cooperation expansion, particularly given the scope of California economy, which currently ranks six in the world and marked by the significant concentration of Hi-Tech companies.
Ambassador Chaly invited local business companies to invest in Ukraine’s economy, develop ties with Ukrainian businesses, launch joint projects in agribusiness, as well as trade and Hi-Tech.
