Her Excellency Natalie Jaresko, Minister of Finance, Ukraine

Lunch with Ukraine's Minister of Finance by The Chicago Council

While geopolitical concerns continue to dominate news about Ukraine, the country is also facing questions about its financial stability. Most recently, Natalie Jaresko, Ukraine’s minister of Finance, successfully negotiated a debt restructuring deal to secure a 20% write-off and avert default. The markets reacted positively to the deal and Ukraine’s economy has received a boost. However, regional conflict still threatens the resilience of the economy for the foreseeable future. How does Ukraine manage its financial future while negotiating its uncertain geopolitical status? What reform efforts are underway to ensure that Ukraine’s economy is competitive?
