/ Events /

The possibility of creating an industrial park to provide new jobs was discussed in Lviv.

About this was reported by Vasyl Khmelnytsky, an entrepreneur and founder of UNIT.City, who met with Mayor Andriy Sadovyi the day before.

"We are considering the option of creating an industrial park here so that our production facilities do not go abroad but stay in Ukraine and create jobs in our country," he said.

The industrial zone "Sygnivka" is considered as a potential location for the industrial park.

According to Roman Staretsky, Head of the Investment Department of the Lviv City Council, the construction of a complex of enterprises on this territory will provide an opportunity about 6,000 jobs. In addition, direct income to the city budget will amount to "approximately UAH 78 million from personal income tax."

It is worth noting that UDP, a development company invested by Vasyl Khmelnytsky's UFuture holding, is engaged in the development of Ukrainian innovation parks.

In particular, they created the UNIT.City innovation park on the territory of the former Kyiv Motorcycle Plant, which provides a space for rapid growth and partnership for modern technology companies.
