"According to a Deloitte study, one of the outstanding results of the Industrial Revolution 4.0 is to enhance the role of business in areas where the state has played a decisive role and even a monopoly role. And indeed: business has certain resources and the ability to influence on its suppliers and customers; is more mobile than the state and more organized than society. But by increasing influence, responsibility increases. In such circumstances, the business will not be able to stand away. Is it ready for such changes? To be transparent, honest, socially responsible, environmentally friendly, valuable. Changes do not begin in government offices, but in the minds of specific people and their daily behavior, " says Andriy Bulakh, Deloitte's managing partner in Ukraine.
"I expect the Forum to have an honest, open discussion, a dialogue between business and government in order each side could heard each other. I am waiting for the reaction of the participants to the presentation the final version of the Concept of the tax code of development, which is agreed with 68 associations of the Ukrainian business community. I have great hope that at this forum that Ukrainian startups will find their potential investors. I expect that a new generation of Ukrainian youth - transformational leaders - will express their readiness to change the country directly and clearly. This is exactly what business forums are for, " said Grigol Katamadze, President of the Association of Taxpayers.
