Christopher W. Smith, Deputy Chief of the U.S. Mission to Ukraine, emphasized that the success of Ukraine's reconstruction requires the collective efforts of all partners and international organizations, not only from the government but also from the private sector. He stated that once the economy starts functioning, life will gradually return to the affected regions of Ukraine, allowing companies to rebuild their devastated enterprises.

During the forum, discussions focused on developing a comprehensive plan of action to rebuild the Ukrainian economy, attract investments, and address the pressing issue of demining territories. The speakers emphasized the need for international cooperation and private-sector involvement in Ukraine's reconstruction efforts. They also highlighted the importance of creating accessible financing options, insurance mechanisms for war risks, and support for Ukrainian farmers in demining activities.

According to Vlad Skots, one of the organizers and the head of the Ukrainian-American House, the forum proved to be a timely initiative as the interest in establishing a business partnership between Ukraine and the United States has significantly increased since the beginning of the conflict. Skots expressed hope that the forum would serve as a hub for exchanging ideas, fostering connections, and creating a platform for developing innovative solutions to the complex challenges faced by Ukraine.

Organizers are confident the Ukrainian-American Forum has the potential to become one of the most influential platforms in U.S.-Ukraine business relations during the war.
