«Ukraine shares the strategic goals of the EU for mining, refining and recycling of critical raw materials. We expect those and other Ukrainian projects could also be identified as Strategic for the EU in order to meet Europe’s demand for CRMs», – said Roman Opimakh.
Ukraine’s business regulation has been reformed to make the country an attractive place of investment, an easy place for international companies to do business and enable the Ukrainian CRM sector to move further up the value chain.
