Shipping accountancy and business consultancy network Moore Stephens has expanded its Eastern Europe coverage by opening an office in Odessa.
Odessa is the Ukraine's major port city and Moore Stephens believes the mixture of shipping and other industry in the region is set for growth.
"Moore Stephens chose Odessa to open a new office because of the shipping connection and because we believe the Ukraine has a bright future," said Martin Rix, managing director of Moore Stephens Ukraine
. "We already have clients in shipping, but we will work across all industries, just as we do in our Russian offices."
