In 2018 in Kiev at a high level will remain the activity of retailers. So, amid the improvement of the macroeconomic situation in 2017, H & M and IKEA announced their readiness to develop on the Ukrainian market. The appearance of such large players will be a signal for other companies that previously viewed Ukraine as a possible option for expansion, but decisions on the withdrawal were postponed due to the unstable economic situation.
This is reported by analysts at JLL.
"As early as 2018, the first stores of such brands as DeFacto, Decathlon, Koton, FLO, H & M and Zara Home are expected to open. All of them will be opened directly by parent companies; this suggests that Ukraine has regained its attractiveness for international retail, "comments Ekaterina Vesna, head of the retail space department at JLL (Ukraine).
We reported earlier that in Ukraine almost three thousand regional infrastructure projects have been implemented.
