Let us remind you that in the spring of 2017 in Mariupol, Donetsk region, the first East Growth conference was held. This forum was not easy but very important. It once again confirmed that East and West have a need for more effective communication, not only in the sphere of transport. Therefore, to get to know each other and to understand that the global experience of Ukraine can be useful for the development of small and medium business, entrepreneurs, experts and representatives of the creative sector came to the conference: to ask questions, to find answers, to look at the sea and to become closer.
