Outward FDI from Ukraine and its policy context

Kononov, Oleksiy

Despite Ukraine's reputation as a poor country with a relatively modest outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) performance, Ukrainian direct investments can be found all over the world, from Europe to Australia. Unfavorable domestic economic conditions and unpredictable political practices, together with a penchant for penetrating closed foreign markets, are among the main OFDI drivers for Ukrainian companies. Ukrainian OFDI declined during the global economic and financial crisis in 200,9 but has begun to recover in 2010 and is forecast to increase thereafter.
