The Ukrainian Bar Association invites you to participate in I UBA Forum on Customs Law and International Trade, to be held on March 15, 2019 in Kyiv (6 Khreshchatyk St., 2nd Floor).

What will talk about?

Customs clearance sometimes resembles a lottery. Despite the fact that all supporting documents are provided in a timely manner and in full, there is never any certainty that the procedure will be successful; therefore, it is always worthwhile to follow the latest trends in the industry and judicial practice.

During the forum, leading experts will tell about the latest trends and share practical life hacks of customs clearance, and find answers to the most important questions.
