It is an honor to lead this delegation from the United States to the great country of Ukraine, said Perry, who leaves Aug. 29. I look forward to strengthening our relationship with such an important ally and furthering our work to ensure energy stability and security in the region.

 

Perry will meet with Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko and other Ukrainian officials to discuss how both countries can continue to boost their economies through a strong energy partnership, the Energy Department said in a statement.

 

Members of the delegation will include Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., and Ray Washburne, president and CEO of Overseas Private Investment Corporation.
