The revival and development of national industry and economy will enable the country to accumulate funds and enhance social standards. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman at the plenary session of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Thursday.
"Only creation of jobs, only manufacturing of the national innovative product with added value will provide an opportunity to obtain funds and reinvest in the quality of life. We must ensure these changes to be quick. For that we need the support of Parliament", said Volodymyr Groysman.
In this context, the Prime Minister called on political leaders not to engage in unbridled populism, particularly during the speeches from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada.
"It is possible to allocate UAH 6 billion today for pension provision. But for the next year, UAH 6 billion for 12 months - we need to find UAH 72 billion. We could only find it from one source: from restoring and development of national industry, from the revival and boost of the national economy," he said.
"Our goal is to create such a system that would give an opportunity of economic revival", emphasized the Prime Minister.
The Government is committed to development of the economy and improvement of wages and minimum social standards is included into the list of priorities, said Volodymyr Groysman. Since December 1, welfare standards will grow by 10%. This figure is insufficient, but it is the growth that can be achieved avoiding getting the state in an inflationary gap and economic decline, said the Prime Minister.
Volodymyr Groysman announced that month the national committee for industry restoration within the Government would be set up.
"In synergy with MPs, with the real sector, industrialists, entrepreneurs we can find a solution at the state level, those crucial for the development of national industry, national economy and creating of jobs," he noted.
The Prime Minister thanked the Verkhovna Rada for the adoption during the plenary meeting on Tuesday the decisions, particularly on technological parks that will revive the national industry.
Also commenting on the issue regarding operation of the Production Association Yuzhny Machine-Building Plant named after A.M. Makarov, Volodymyr Groysman called for urgent finding of "systemic solutions regarding how to restore work of the enterprise to prevent it generate debts."
