“On behalf of the business community, I would like to congratulate the National Bank of Ukraine and Chief Editor of the Kyiv Post Brian Bonner with these well-deserved awards. A strong and independent central bank, as well as free and independent media play a key role in Ukraine’s macroeconomic stability as they are a powerful signal of trust for foreign investors. Also, I express my sincere gratitude to members, Board of Directors, U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, Ukrainian state authorities and international partners for everything they do for business and Ukraine, making a difference and changing people’s lives for the better”, commented Andy Hunder, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine.
