description

For the past eight years, the Austrian Economics Center in collaboration with leading research centers and universities has been organizing annual Free Market Road Show, touring around Europe. The objective of the tour is joining efforts of prominent economists, politicians and business people to address pressing economic issues and, thus, promoting the ideas of free economy and individual freedom.

2016 FMRS has already visited more than twenty countries, and its topic is taxes, tax harmonization in the EU and "fiscal oases" to be exact. On May 24 the tour made a stop in Kyiv. Barbara Kolm (Austrian Economics Center), Yaron Brook (Ayn Rand Institute), Ron Manners (Mannwest Group), Federico Fernandez (Austrian Economics Center) and Volodymyr Kotenko (Ernst & Young) all took part in the discussion of Death and Taxes during the first panel.

The second panel was devoted to the presentation of the program of radical reforms of the Bendukidze Free Market Center. Volodymyr Fedoryn (Bendukidze Free Market Center), Tymofiy Mylovanov (Kyiv School of Economics) and Pavlo Kukhta (Strategic Advisory Group under the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine) discussed the economic situation in Ukraine. FMRS participants also had the opportunity to talk to Ms Hermine Poppeller (Ambassador of Austria to Kyiv) and Oleksandr Danylyuk (Minister of Finance of Ukraine).

Bendukidze Free Market Center and Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit were the co-organizers of the tour in Ukraine.
