Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman believes the Parliament and the Government will carry out smooth cooperation from the beginning of the new session as the adoption of important laws will change life within the country for the better.
"I hope that from now on the Ukrainian Parliament will demonstrate synergy between MPs, parliamentary committees, between the Parliament's leadership and the Government. Under the circumstances we should show consolidation and efficiency", said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman after the opening of the fifth session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Tuesday.
The Prime Minister stressed that the Government is committed to prolong constructive collaboration.
"We must focus on passing topmost acts that were designed to change life for the better. And what is vital is to introduce those changes fast", he stressed.
He noted that among the essential objectives is the work at the adoption of the State Budget for 2017. Volodymyr Groysman accentuated that the Government would submit to the Parliament “a completely honest Budget” for the broad access of the public and experts.
In the draft Budget the Government has defined as top priorities the following sectors: defence and national security, energy efficiency, reconstruction of roads, development of the national economy, support of farmers, and stimulating the national engineering industries. Another initiative of the Government to be offered to Parliament is to raise salaries to educationalists. From 2017 it is planned to conduct a comprehensive energy modernization of the country, said the Head of Government.
Among the landmarks of the Budget is preserving decentralization as an effective mechanism for solving local problems. Volodymyr Groysman noted that there had already begun the work on the creation of new infrastructure in the regions – road repairs, construction of hospitals, kindergartens as a result of decentralization, particularly financial.
"I think people expect that we can ensure efficient interaction between all branches of government. The Government demonstrates commitment, and I am sure we will succeed. The success will affect the Ukrainian citizens", highlighted the Prime Minister.
