EU and AMCU organise the First in Ukraine International State Aid Conference

On 27 May 2016 an International State Aid Conference: “A New Approach to State Aid to Undertakings in Ukraine – Doing More with Less” will be held in Kyiv. It is organised by the Project together with the future regulator – the Anti-Monopoly Committee of Ukraine.

The purpose of the Conference is to introduce the coming Ukrainian State aid system to a wide audience and the media and with an emphasis on the new obligations for different stakeholders and the overall benefits for Ukraine. In particular, a focus of the event will be on the content of the Law on State Aid to Undertakings, the requirements of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and the Energy Community Treaty regarding State aid regulation and the role of key State aid providers in working with the AMCU. The Law on State Aid to Undertakings comes fully into force in August 2017 and is expected to have implications for most Government Ministries, Regional authorities and larger local administrations in Ukraine.

The Conference will be opened by the Chairman of the Anti-Monopoly Committee of Ukraine together with the Deputy Head of the EU Delegation to Ukraine, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade of Ukraine, and Director of the Government Office for European Integration. Conference participants will have an opportunity to hear presentations by representatives of the European Commission, the Energy Community Secretariat, the EFTA Surveillance Authority, the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Energy and Coal and Project Experts about the numerous aspects of the developing State aid system in Ukraine.
