In November 2016, Dnipro City Council unveiled the new Dnipro Development Agency (DDA) as part of efforts to boost the city’s business climate and facilitate investments.
The concept behind the DDA is to help make the city more open and accessible to the outside world, in order to attract new investment and help create more work places.
Our two key projects are building Industrial park “INNOVATION FORPOST” and tourism development.
In September 2021, the DDA acquired the status of the management company of the Industrial Park “INNOVATION FORPOST” (hereinafter – IF). IF is at the stage of design: active works on designing of main roads and engineering networks are underway. Also DDA is actively working on attraction of residents – future participants of the IF.
We offer potential investors a full service package that includes everything from initial contacts to support for issues such as land allocation and communications. We also seek to minimize unnecessary bureaucracy.
Our second key objective is to develop the Dnipro brand. During the Soviet era, Dnipro was a closed city. As a result, it remains off the radar for many foreign businesses. We want to change perceptions. It is no coincidence that the DDA slogan is, “Let’s Open Dnipro to the World!” Tourism can play an important role here – both as a way of promoting a more open and accessible Dnipro brand, and as an important industry that will support the city economy.
