August 11th “Doing Business in Ukraine, Bulgaria and the Region”

Kompass partner, Global Chamber, is collaborating with the US-Bulgaria Chamber on a conversation about business opportunities in Ukraine, Bulgaria, and the region. Read on for more details on the event and on partnering with Kompass.

Kompass partner, Global Chamber, is pleased to announce “Global Is Good”, a multi-year, ‘forever’ initiative that spotlights the goodness of global business including exporting, trade and investment, and identifies more opportunities for members and leaders to succeed.

Thinking and acting globally creates prosperity, connectivity, and understanding for those with the background and initiative to engage. That prosperity comes from trade through exchanges of goods and services, distributing wealth across proactive leaders and communities.

This initiative sponsored by Global Chamber® will share information and success stories through our members to explain more why ‘global is good’, to adjust the mindset of all leaders to be open to global engagement, and then create the mechanisms to make it easier for them to get involved with global opportunities. It’s important for all of us, our children, our communities, and the future.

As part of the initiative, Global Chamber will collaborate with the US-Bulgaria Chamber in America on a conversation about business opportunities in Ukraine, Bulgaria, and the region, featuring Igor Novikov, an aide to President Zelenskyy. Reserve your spot for August 11th.
