SUP Team

Demand for Ukrainian goods and services is growing in the world, and businesses entering international markets need more and more support. Among SUP participants, we notice an increase in requests for consultations on how to export their products correctly and efficiently.

Therefore, the Union of Ukrainian Entrepreneurs is creating the Centre for International Cooperation, which will deal, in particular, with:
— analytics on how and where it is better to export;
— consultations on entering the European and other markets;
— help to those who are just starting to engage in exporting activities;
— help in finding new clients, contractors, and partners abroad.


The Centre for International Cooperation will become an important area of ​​work of the Union, because a lot of Union members export products and services abroad, or plan on doing so, and require constant support.

The goal of the Centre is to unify and scale up activities to help SUP participants enter new markets.

The launch is supported by CIPE Ukraine.


Certified experts on exporting activities will operate in the Centre. The coordinator of the Centre work is Ilona Knyshuk, Coordinator.

The Centre will provide the following services:
- Individual consultations on the choice of export market based on statistics from international databases (includes consultations on permit documentation, a list of countries with the best conditions, customs tariffs, etc.)

The first important stage of the Centre's work will be the study of business needs in entering new markets – it will be conducted with the support of CIPE Ukraine. Based on these data, the further line of work will be drawn up.
