With highly arable land and 30% of world’s black soil in Ukraine, the fertile tracts of country offers sure shot returns on investment in agriculture which go as high as 40%.

Adding to Col Sandhu Mr Anatoily Pylypko said that the investment is safe to the extent that registration of investment amount by the investor with government after forming a limited liability company would ensure that in case of nationalization, the invested amount would be refunded.

Lt Col Sandhu added that WWICS would provide them free language course to its clients who apply for making investment in Ukraine because till they get the requisite permissions they could train themselves with the Ukrainian language & culture.


While Ukraine which is going to be a part of European Union in 2011 abounds in extremely lucrative and profitable business and investment opportunities in farm sector, WWICS will be focusing upon investment and entrepreneurship based exchange from India.
