The two-day Rebuild Ukraine conference is being held at the Polish capital's Expo XXI venue, accompanied by a commercial exhibition.

Some 540 businesses from more than 30 countries are taking part, according to the Ukrainian embassy in Warsaw.

The event is taking place with the support of the Ukrainian Ministry of Energy and the country's Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development.

Other key partners include the State Agency of Infrastructure Recovery and Development of Ukraine, the Polish Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, and the US Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine.

The event is a follow-up to the first Rebuild Ukraine conference and exhibition held in February, which "exceeded all expectations," drawing international manufacturers, local communities and partners from the around world, according to the organizers.

The main aim of the gathering is to garner funding from international institutions for the recovery of Ukrainian communities, aid Ukrainian energy companies in restoring critical infrastructure facilities damaged during Russia's invasion, and promote investment in Ukrainian cities and regions, according to the chamber.ua website.

Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022, launching the largest military campaign in Europe since World War II.
