Politicians, opinion-leaders, business people and thinkers looked at a changing Ukraine and world and discussed possibilities for the future. One of the question asked was whether systems and structures of Ukraine are strong enough to face the economic, technological, security and ecological challenges we face nowadays?
Mr. President Aleksander Kwaśniewski (chairman of the YES Board) in his closing remarks said:
"This year, YES was full of surprises. Some happened by chance while others did not. Because, in fact, Ukraine is where the world's most unexpected things and surprises happen in 2019... Over the last two days, we have met and come to know absolutely new leaders, a new Ukraine. We have seen vigor, consciousness, sense of humor and determination. I think this is a good basis for change. Changes are not easy because expectations are very high. But this picture of a new, energetic, young country promises a lot!"
