Ukrainian Business Leaders Outlook 2021

Ukrainian Business Leaders Outlook 2021

This KPMG report presents the views of Ukrainian business leaders in Ukraine about their companies, business as a whole, and global and local economic growth. The survey offers a unique look at how executives thinking is changing because of the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The survey involved 70 business leaders and executives whose companies operate in various sectors of the Ukrainian economy. This survey was conducted in Ukraine from July to October 2021. The structure of the survey was based on 19 questions adapted from those used in the international survey KPMG 2021 CEO Outlook. The above executives work in more than 11 key areas, including the asset management sector, the automotive industry, banking, retail, energy, transportation, insurance, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and technology. Of the 70 executives, 30 represent companies with revenues of up to EUR8 million; 14 of them represent companies with revenues ranging from EUR8 million to EUR40 million euros; and 26 represent companies with revenues of over EUR40 million. We compared the data published in this report with the results of the KPMG 2021 CEO Outlook global report.

NOTE: Some figures may not add up to 100 percent due to rounding.

KPMG in Ukraine would like to thank all the business leaders who joined in our the survey, as well as all those who shared their thoughts with us.
