One of the topics on the table during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s visit to Prague last week was the post-war reconstruction of Ukraine, in which hundreds of Czech companies are eager to partake. Tomáš Kopečny, the government’s envoy for the reconstruction of Ukraine, is due to travel to Kyiv this week, together with 30 Czech business leaders to ascertain the possibilities.

While Czechia is still heavily involved in providing military and humanitarian assistance to Ukraine, talks are underway to lay the foundations for long-term cooperation that will continue when the war ends and help Czech companies to establish themselves on the Ukrainian market.

During President Zelensky’s visit to Prague last week the two sides signed a memorandum on cooperation between the Czech and Ukrainian ministries of defense; a document that will help to develop closer cooperation in the repair and maintenance of weapons, their development and modernization.
