On November 23, 2023, the Department of Economics and Competition Policy organized a guest lecture on the topic "Economic Resilience of Ukraine in the Face of Shock Impacts". The lecturer was Ivan Us, PhD, a renowned expert-analyst, chief consultant of the Center for Foreign Policy Studies at the National Institute for Strategic Studies.
During the lecture, the speaker identified strategic directions for the development of Ukraine's economy in the context of shock impacts and global challenges. The esteemed expert emphasized that the prospects for the development of the Ukrainian economy are linked to the implementation of a range of unique competitive advantages, forming the basis for the formation of our country's export potential. This includes not only the agricultural sector, natural resources, logistical opportunities, and low production costs for certain goods but also the prospects for integrating Ukrainian enterprises into global value chains in the production of high-tech goods.
Despite the scale and wide range of issues discussed, the lecturer successfully presented the analytical material in an accessible format for the audience, using statistical data, interesting examples, and generalizations. At the end of the lecture, participants had the opportunity to receive answers to a series of questions.
Yurii Umantsiv, the head of the Department of Economics and Competition Policy, highlighted the relevance of the issues covered during the lecture and expressed gratitude to Mr. Us for conducting it.
The event was attended by over 100 participants, including students, postgraduates, and academic staff of the Department of Economics and Competition Policy. The department and students express their gratitude to Ivan Us for an excellent lecture, an engaging communication format, and the opportunity to deepen knowledge in the field of Ukraine's economic resilience.
