As of today, more than 230 business entities, relocated from other parts of Ukraine, continue working in the Lviv region. This was reported by Andrii Hodyk, first deputy head of Lviv regional military administration.
In general, since the beginning of the full-scale war, more than 800 enterprises have moved here, but most of them have returned to their native settlements, because the active phase of hostilities has ended there. Still, more than 30% of relocated enterprises are ready to remain in Lviv region.
"The number of enterprises that will remain in the region after the end of the war will depend on how long the active phase of hostilities will last in the regions from which they came. A lot of businesses have turned back after the shift of the front line, so it is extremely difficult to give an accurate forecast now. According to a preliminary analysis, more than 30% of relocated enterprises are ready to stay in Lviv region in the future," - he said.
He also added that the Lviv region is provided with electricity for 60-65% of the total need of the region.
"In connection with the specified limit, it is necessary to apply schedules of hourly outages. At the same time, together with the operator of the distribution system, we try as much as possible to keep the facilities of life support in populated areas alive. In particular, these are heating and water supply enterprises, as well as health care institutions, in order to create the most comfortable conditions, as well as to provide emergency medical assistance to the residents of the Lviv region," - he said.
We would like to remind you that in the Lviv region, a Business Support Program is functioning during martial law, which provides financial assistance to businesses that have moved to Lviv region or are operating in our region. It will become an auxiliary tool for economic initiatives introduced by the state.
