The two countries have launched the initiative to facilitate digital trade and investment by supporting relationships between high potential Ukrainian businesses and UK tech firms and investors. There will also be virtual 'missions' for priority sectors such as healthtech, agritech and fintech.

The Department for Business and Trade says that a number of UK-based tech companies have developed free online training as well as expert discussions that are both online and in-person for Ukraininan businesses to develop their skills.

According to the UK Government, the programme will ensure that both British and Ukrainian tech businesses sectors have access to each other’s markets for commercial opportunities, making the most of the UK-Ukraine Digital Trade Agreement

The TechBridge is already accessible and in-person missions are intended for as early as March.

'I am confident that, through the UK-Ukraine TechBridge, numerous large-scale joint projects will be implemented, setting an example of successful, mutually beneficial international partnership for other countries,' says Ukraine Deputy Minister of Digital Transformation Oleksandr Bornyakov.
