The Association makes the platform for effective communication between business and governmental authorities, local self-government bodies and public institutions. The Association ensures face-to-face dialogue with the entities that make decisions on behalf of the state and allows members to tell such entities not only the problems that businesses face in Ukraine but also to jointly develop the methods of their settlement and extend the best European practices of doing business.
The Association is a community that unites representatives of business working in various spheres, who speak the same language – language of the Law, and demand the same from other market players and the state. This dialog is aimed at business development via mutual build-up of the best place for business, development of the rule-of-law and more economically developed state.
The Association is a tool enabling to set up a real and transparent business community and investment climate. The Association's team ensures accomplishment of such common initiatives of its members through rapid and viable advocacy mechanisms, legislative initiatives or getting problems and proposals of its members to attention of the public and governmental authorities.
On the values of the Association:
Transparency is the major value, which the Association supports and cultivates. Just for me, it means transparency in business rules, transparency of communication with governmental authorities and local self-government bodies, transparency of actions, intentions and declarations. Transparency is the environment that leaves no chances for corruption. If there is nothing to conceal, then transparency is of value for business and not a threat to it. It is impossible to demand a fair judicial system and economically strong state and, at the same time, rely on a possibility of corruptive methods of solving problems, using various approaches to corruption while objecting and tolerating this phenomenon. The entire business community should understand it, and the EBA facilitates such understanding proving a real significance and possibility to conduct business with European values in mind, one of the main values being transparency and zero tolerance of corruption.
Innovation is the next value. The world does not stand still, and business, like the state, develops due to innovations. New requirements necessitate novel advanced solutions, new technologies and changes. Those companies that understand it first and implement such new technologies in their practice without reservation or, moreover, create them will always be leaders of the market. The Association supports innovations and facilitates spread of novel ideas and development of advanced solutions.
