Since the first days of the war, Japan has supported Ukraine on an inter-state level as one of its main allies in Asia. Starting from 2014 with the occupation of Crimea and east of Ukraine, Japan has introduced sanctions against the Russian federation, with whom Japan, Poland and Ukraine all share their borders. In the last eight years the assistance of Japan to Ukraine constituted over 7 billion USD, out of which 700 million USD were allocated in the last year.
Both Ukraine and Poland have close ties with Japan, which are becoming only closer with each year. Poland and Japan will participate in the reconstruction of Ukraine. Already now we are witnessing a great interest of international companies in establishing their presence in Poland in order to be geographically and logistically closer to Ukraine, a country which has already suffered war damages amounting to over 750 billion USD.
Japanese and Polish governmental institutions will play a great role in the future reconstruction of Ukraine. So too will Japanese and Polish business, who must already today start to prepare for the post-war challenges. Planning respective processes, budgeting, recruitment, legal preparation, investigation of international missions, defining strategies: those are only a few of the matters, which must be taken care of. International projects strongly differ from the usual domestic procurement procedures. Foreign trade also has its peculiarities, legal and customs formalities.
