The Polish-Ukrainian Cooperation Foundation – PAUCI was established in April 2005 as a legacy organization to the Poland-America-Ukraine Cooperation Initiative. Since 1999, this initiative served as a unique tri-lateral program aimed at sharing the best practices of Poland´s successful transition from a centrally planned economy to a liberal, market-oriented democracy.
