The team of the TV project “Social Life” presented Sir Richard Branson with a “vyshyvanka” [a Ukrainian traditional embroidered shirt], and he put it on! The founder of the Virgin Corporation [now Group, a conglomerate] inspired some lucky students, spoke at Forum One [business and leadership forum which took place today] and predicted economic growth in Ukraine. All the reviews about the extravagant guru can be summarized in one line: “I fell in love with him even more!”
He continued to wear it for an interview with HromadskeTV where he talked about investing in Ukraine and possible future Virgin Group ventures there in the future. “I mean, personally, I think that Ukraine is a good place to invest…I recommend to my friends that they should invest in Ukraine,” he stated. He went on to say that to make it more appealing for investors, Ukraine could create a 10 year clean energy plan to produce all energy internally and stop money going out to other countries, and to create a drug policy in Ukraine that treats drug use not as a criminal problem but rather as a health problem.
