Being sure that Ukraine can become more arbitration-friendly jurisdiction, together with other UAA members we are planning to improve arbitration legislation, court practice, educations of Ukrainian lawyers for both counsel and arbitrator work in order to achieve this goal. We have already implemented a number of initiatives in the working groups and through sharing experience with the international arbitration community and are planning to keep the pace for the next 4 years” – commented Olena her appointment.
