The report reflected the results of the implementation of Jean Monnet EU projects: "Using best EU practices for sustainable economy forming in Ukraine” (UBEUP) 553 185-EPP-1-2014- 1-UA-EPPJMO-MODULE) and "Opportunities and Challenges of Trade with the EU for Ukraine (573581-EPP-1-2016-1-UAEPPJMO-MODULE). 
On real examples of the development of Ukrainian economy (the 4th place in Europe for the electrification of transport, the 1st  place in the world by the number of freelancers per capita, the impressive growth rate of the "green" energy, etc.) it was shown that Ukraine has good prospects to take a place among the leading information economy countries in the world. The report was of great interest and there were many questions.
