Federal Councilor Ignazio Cassis has symbolically handed over responsibility for continuing the conference on Ukrainian reconstruction to the British government. The venue will thus change from Lugano, where the conference took place last July, to London for 2023.

On Wednesday in Davos, Federal Councilor Ignazio Cassis symbolically handed over the task of the next Ukraine reconstruction conference to British State Secretary Grant Shapps (centre) in the presence of Ukrainian State Secretary Oleksandr Bankov (right).

Cassis told the media in Davos that many were amazed last year that a reconstruction conference had already taken place during the ongoing war. “We knew it was a challenge,” Cassis said. However, such a process requires a long-term perspective.

Ukraine’s reconstruction is an irreversible process that must start today, said Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, who was connected via video. British Business and Energy Secretary Grant Shapps congratulated Switzerland for the work it has done. “We’re trying to fill those big shoes,” he said.
