Ambassador Motsyk with Kim Phan, Patrick Macrory and Jeff Ziarnik in the George Washington Room at the Ukraine Embassy


Ukraine Ambassador to the United States thanks ILI for training trade lawyers of the Ukraine Embassy. 

On January 28, 2011, ILI Executive Director Kim Phan, Director of the International Trade Law Center Patrick Macrory, and Program Administrator Jeff Ziarnik, at the invitation of Ambassador Olexander Motsyk, paid a visit to The Embassy of Ukraine to the United States.

The meeting followed the completion of the ILI Dispute Mechanisms of the WTO training seminar attended by members of the Embassy. Two Embassy staff were awarded scholarships to recognize Ukraine's increasing involvement in the WTO and to celebrate past Ukrainian participation in ILI seminars.

The parties exchanged ideas of fostering mutual cooperation on future projects. Discussions covered advanced legal and economic training in areas of international trade law, international investment law, public procurement, and judicial trainings. The parties also discussed the potential for training at ILI in Washington DC and special training to be arranged in Ukraine.

The International Law Institute would like to thank Ambassador Motsyk and the Embassy of Ukraine for their hospitality and recommendations for future collaboration.
