The Factor Group of Companies became an official partner of the Second International Business Forum “Ukraine – 2015. The Strategic Vision: Opportunities and Challenges”, which was held on March 20 in Kharkiv. The event attracted more than 200 representatives of business circles of Ukraine, as well as Europe and the United States. Forum participants shared their experiences, discussed the problems of modern Ukrainian business and the possible solutions.
The president of the Factor Group Sergei Polituchy was one of the speakers of the round table named “Opportunities”. During the discussion Sergei noted that the serious obstacles to the successful entry of Ukraine into the European space are “mental barriers” – the borders existing not in reality, but in our heads, and the belief left for us from the Soviet past that our welfare is required someone to care of it – the state, the government, the international community. He recalled that in Europe no one Ukrainian businessman will receive a discount, there people are waiting for Ukraine as an equal partner, and only we responsible for our competitiveness.
Olga Shapoval, the General Director of the printing house “Factor-Druk”, which is a part of the Factor Group, shared her experience of entering the European market with the participants of the business forum.
