EBA Working Group on Assisting Business in ATO Area

EBA Working Group on Assisting Business in ATO Area



This EBA Working Group provides assistance to businesses operating in the territory of the anti-terrorist operation. It was launched in summer 2014, led by EBA Donetsk office when the conflict had just been heating up. The Working Group has expanded its activities in Kyiv when the situation escalated. The representatives of Ukrainian and foreign companies affected by the conflict and its consequences joined the group.

Working Group members are the companies which operate or have operated in the ATO-zone. They gather their efforts towards solving problems, particularly through cooperation with government authorities. The Working Group repeatedly addressed the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, relevant ministries and other bodies with requests to pay attention to the list of problems which they face in eastern Ukraine. Many companies keep on operating in the occupied territories as well as meeting their tax obligations to the State Budget.

The Working Group members are convinced that the current situation in eastern Ukraine is a real problem not only for regional business but also for the entire country's economy. Moreover, taking into account dire economic statistics, its clear what was a local conflict steadily transformed into a national crisis. The number of concerned parties, as well as the numerous appeals of business to the EBA shows the considerable effect on the business environment which can not be ignored.

Among the Working Group activities are:

  • to communicate business problems faced by EBA members operating in the ATO-zone to Ukrainian government authorities;
  • to communicate government feedback and positions to EBA members;
  • to inform EBA members about changes and developments in Ukrainian legislation regarding business activity in the ATO-zone;
  • to create a platform for the exchange of information regarding business conduct in the ATO-zone.

Olena Vardamatska, Associate, Wolf Theiss, was elected the Working Group Chairman in 2016.

The EBA Working Group on ATO issues holds its meetings on an ad hoc basis.
