According to the level of domestic investment in energy efficiency industry, Kharkiv region ranks first in Ukraine, announced the chairman of Kharkiv Regional State Administration (KRSA) Igor Rainin during a meeting with the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Austria in Ukraine Hermine Poppeller.

The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Austria in Ukraine noted that in Europe, Ukraine is considered as a very promising country in terms of industrial development.
