September 23, Canada took into consideration the reasonable grounds of the Canadian Embassy in Ukraine, Canadian entrepreneurs and Canadian affiliated business entities in Ukraine about the withdrawal of the recommendation to its citizens. This recommendation limits the flow of tourists and investors to Kharkiv region. This was informed by the director of international relations Providence Group (Toronto) Taras Paslavsky in a letter to the Chairman of the Kharkiv Regional State Administration, Igor Rainin.
“The withdrawal of Canadian travel restrictions on its citizens to the Kharkiv region opens up additional possibilities for the development of business relations with the country. Kharkiv can be attractive for Canadian investors. And now we have a possibility to show Canada the potential of the Kharkiv region, not only on the meetings in Kiev and business forums in other countries. Of course, business people are willing to invest in what they saw personally,” said the deputy chairman of State Administration, Yulia Svetlichnaya.
Recall that in 2014 Canadian Government recommended Canadians not to visit Kharkiv, Donetsk, Luhansk regions and the occupied Crimea.
