Second Ministerial Roundtable Discussion for Support to Ukraine

Tune in to the online conversation #ResilientFuture

Watch in Ukrainian: УКРАЇНСЬКА

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is having devastating and far-reaching human and economic impacts. Economic support from the international community has been instrumental to ensuring continuity of essential services—such as healthcare, education, pensions, and social protection—for the people of Ukraine as well as providing for humanitarian needs.

A ministerial roundtable took place on Wednesday, October 12th, co-chaired by the Government of Ukraine, the World Bank Group, and the IMF to discuss Ukraine’s financing needs, priorities for sustaining essential services during wartime, as well as priority recovery and reconstruction projects that can be quickly initiated.
