American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine marks 25th Anniversary at Gala Celebration
On 1 June Ukraine’s Business Community Event of the Year brought together 1,500 VIP guests to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine at Mysteskyi Arsenal. It was great to see representatives of Chamber Members Companies, high-level state officials, members of the business and diplomatic community, partners and friends — everyone, who has been a part of the ACC’s accomplishments in Ukraine over the past 25 years. It was an honor to welcome Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Kyiv city mayor Vitali Klitschko as well as receive video greetings from the most powerful lobbying organization in the world — the U.S. Chamber of Commerce — by Myron Brilliant, executive vice president and head of International Affairs. Greetings from United States President Donald Trump, voiced by U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during her speech, were a very special surprise for the American Chamber of Commerce and all guests.
