Denmark launched a special investment fund for Ukraine amounting to 1 billion DKK, i.e. ca. 133 million USD, as reported by the Ministry of Economy of Ukraine under the results of the Investment Forum in Copenhagen. 

Yuliia Svyrydenko, the Minister of Economy of Ukraine, explains that such investment fund will finance projects with Danish technologies and innovative solutions involved, available both to public and private sectors. 

Oleksandr Hryban, the Deputy Minister, notes that Ukraine sees great prospects in applying and placing Danish companies in Ukraine in priority industries, such as renewable energy, building materials, utility recovery technologies, as well as defense technologies and dual-purpose technologies. 

Forum speakers have announced on approval of financing for two pilot projects in agriculture and agrarian processing. Funds will be granted to war-affected companies in the south of Ukraine: for instance, Nibulon will receive 25 million EUR, while Agrofusion will gain 15 million EUR. 

Also, loans will be provided to agricultural companies located in Mykolaiv near the front line, aimed to restore destroyed production facilities by purchasing equipment from Danish exporters. 

Yuliia Svyrydenko notes that from the beginning of the full-scale war Denmark granted military aid to Ukraine equal to 1.4 billion USD, as well as sent humanitarian aid, including macro-financial, in the amount of 212 million USD.
