We're dealing with FDI more than 5 years. Here is the extract of our observations and conclusions.
Market demand
Among our clients: Fujikura, Leoni, Aluthea, Thyregod A/S, Austrian Airlines, Alphalighting, local IT companies. Consistently involving and convincing foreign companies to do business in Ukraine serving them in industrial and office real estate search it is obvious for us lack of suitable premises for such purpose. Absence of acting industrial parks and newly built offices.
