May 31 - June 1, Kiev hosted the training "Creating the Local Economic Development Plan", where Ekaterina Chistyakova took part. Last year in November Odessa joined the European initiative "Measures for Economic Growth - Ukraine" # M4EG. By joining the Initiative, we can participate in trainings, study trips and share experiences to promote the economic growth of cities. So, at the first module of the training on the development of the plan, we studied how to apply the M4EG approaches, the processes for preparing a plan for local economic growth, improving existing documents from planning.
Our advantage in preparing for writing a plan is our own development strategy and the investment concept of the city "Odessa 5T", which was also presented to representatives of cities - signatories of the Initiative. "The Mayors for Economic Growth" initiative supports cities in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine to promote economic growth and job creation by improving the local business environment, encouraging entrepreneurship and attracting investment for sustainable economic development. # odessa5t #cooperation
