ABOUT THE FORUM
The problem of counterfeiting has always been a topical issue for both Ukraine and the world. Moreover, the problem becomes even more relevant, despite the enormous efforts of states and businesses to combat this phenomenon. In August 2020, the international research company Euromonitor International predicted that the loss of the world economy should be 3% or USD 2.2 trillion.

Ukrainian and international business representatives will participate in the event. Representatives of international and international organizations that daily systematically fight the grey market and distribution of counterfeit goods such as World Customs Organization, INTERPOL, Ministry of Interior of Ukraine, as well as representatives of owners of world-famous brands are invited to speak at the forum. During the event, participants will discuss, among other issues, global anticounterfeiting trends and successes in Ukraine and worldwide.
