of Modern Medicines in Ukraine -

The breakfast was hosted by the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council (USUBC). Nearly 100 senior business leaders, academics, and diplomats attended this invitation-only event, including three former United States ambassadors to Ukraine and the current US Ambassador to Kyiv William Taylor.

President Yushchenko discussed the current political and economic situation in Ukraine. The President repeated his strong support for Ukraine's further integration into the Euro-Atlantic community as shown by the recent events in Georgia, spoke about Ukraine's business environment, thanked the U.S. companies for their investments in Ukraine, and urged American investors to participate in even more projects in Ukraine.

Asking the first question, Dr. Alibek asked the Ukrainian President about prospects for ensuring timely registration and licensing procedures for foreign pharmaceutical companies with established production facilities in Ukraine, in order to expedite access to the latest medicines for the people of Ukraine. Companies are experiencing unnecessary and costly delays in this area, Dr. Alibek noted.

President Yushchenko stated that it is very important for Ukraine to have the latest and most effective pharmaceuticals. The Ukrainian President promised he would monitor this situation, and suggested to Dr. Alibek that he work closely with Mr. Yushchenko's staff to resolve this issue.

Later the same day, President Yushchenko met with President Bush at the White House, spoke at the National Press Club, and laid a wreath at the monument to famous Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko in Washington, DC.
