“Lviv is a city with a modern diversified economy. The main industries here are IT and tourism. More than 15,000 professionals are working in the it sector today. Tourism is focused mainly on the domestic market, but the city is making efforts to attract the attention of foreign tourists as well, in particular, to develop the MICE tourism. In 2015 the number of tourists in Lviv exceed 2 million people.
“Traditional” economy of the city is represented by such branches:
– Food manufacturing (chocolate, coffee, butter, dairy products, yeast)
– Production of vehicles and various equipment (trams, trolleybuses, electric instrumentation, lighting equipment)
– Light industry (clothing, footwear)
Due to its geographical location Lviv has a chance to become a major logistics centre. Woodworking and printing industries can also be considered as potentially interesting sites. Lviv is one of the largest publishing centers in Ukraine, although the majority of books are printed on imported paper.”
