Recession: Current Trends and Future Possibilities

The Ukrainian Journal of Business Law, Vol.8 #3 March 2009

The credit crunch which has turned into financial crisis and subsequently to the global economic downturn unprecedented for 70 years, has led the mergers and acquisitions market into unchartered waters. Lots of people remain clueless about the further effects of the deepening recession and its longevity. Even high-ranking and respected economists and analysts have tended not to make far-reaching prognoses since the forecasts of investment banks' analysts and rating agencies crashed at the beginning of the credit crunch.

Trade Remedies in Ukraine

Ukrainian Law Firms 2009

Since the accession to the World Trade Organization, Ukraine faces a challenge to balance between its international commitments to liberalize the domestic measures to encourage international trade and the domestic pressures to ensure that the trade is “fair”. Currently, the national laws are consistent with the Ukraine’s international obligations arising from the WTO trade remedy provisions agreed to as part of the Uruguay Round of multilateral trade negotiations (1986-1994), particularly the WTO Anti-dumping Agreement, WTO Agreement on Safeguards and WTO Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures, and other trade agreements to which Ukraine is a party. However, laws of Ukraine as well provide a number of effective avenues for domestic industries to seek relief when they believe they have been injured by imports or unfair trade practices.

Credit Crunch Challenges for the Ukrainian Banking System

Ukrainian Law Firms 2009

With even mighty Swiss banks requesting government support in the autumn of 2008, it comes as no big surprise that the Ukrainian banking system is suddenly looking fragile.

The Ukrainian economy is now collapsing, not because of toxic mortgage loans as is the case in the United States, but rather because of the credit crunch’s impact on capital markets. With the increased role of export-oriented production in the country’s economic growth, Ukraine became vulnerable to world demand for metal and other “traditional” Ukrainian commodities, especially for steel.

Investors expect the Ukrainian government authorities to take the steps similar to those actions made by governments of the USA, the UK, Germany, Russia and other countries to support some of the troubled financial institutions. Certainly, everyone is looking at the Ukrainian authorities right now, wondering whether they will be able to agree upon and implement a plan that will minimize the consequences of the global financial crisis for the Ukrainian economy.

Mass Lay Offs, Fort Vacations, Pay Cuts Due to Global Financial Crisis

The Ukrainian Journal of Business Law, Vol.7 #2 February 2009

It's no wonder that global financial crisis has affected almost every country in the world. Some countries suffer less, some suffer more -than others. Ukraine, like other European countries, faced a financial crisis and is currently elaborating special mechanisms and legal instruments to overcome the approaching disaster. Recently in Parliament numerous draft laws and amendments were introduced to existing laws to heal (immunize) the existing financial system and business of Ukraine.
