About the event

Smartphone, tablet, laptop, flash drive, etc. What unites all these devices? The presence of a chip in it, which is 90% likely to be made in Taiwan.

Taiwan produces over 60% of the world’s microchips, including 90% of high-tech chips.

However, in 2020, the world was hit by the global microchip crisis. In particular, manufacturers did not foresee the surge in demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, Ukraine also has its own footprint in the microchip industry due to its neon production plants, supplying a crucial component essential for the global industry. Moreover, the country has also taken an active course to develop digital innovations and technologies.

So, how realistic is it to create and develop a semiconductor industry in Ukraine? What needs to be done? Where to start on this path? What has Ukraine already done to become one step closer to leadership? Is business ready to invest in Ukraine and have a development in this area? What are the challenges?

The “Ukraine in the World of Semiconductors” meeting will address these questions. Hence, Global Business for Ukraine, in cooperation with the European Business Association and with support of the Embassy of Ukraine in Switzerland, invites you to participate in the event on December 12 in Zurich at 10:00 CET time, lasting for 2 hours.

Among the invited speakers:

  • Iryna Venediktova, Ambassador of Ukraine to the Swiss Confederation and Principality of Liechtenstein
  • Maksym Yarema, Assistant Professor at the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich)
  • Denys Pozdniakov, Advisor to the Deputy Prime Minister for Innovation, Education, Science and Technology Development – Minister of Digital Transformation of Ukraine
  • Yuriy Antoniuk, Vice President, Head of EPAM in Central and Eastern Europe
  • Other speakers are in the process of confirmation.

The event will be held online and offline.

The offline event will be at Trust Square Paradeplatz Poststrasse 5-7 8001 Zurich, Switzerland, and the online event will be on Zoom.

Registration is required. We sincerely invite you to register and see you at the discussion!
