Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman presented at a meeting of the Government on Wednesday a draft Medium Term Plan of Priority Actions for the Government for the period up to 2020.
According to him, the Government has fulfilled its promise to prepare such a document before the end of year that was envisaged by the Government Action Programme presented in Parliament at the time of its appointment.
"I’d prefer we would have managed to do everything dependent on us and to become at last the government of another kind having an entirely different philosophy so that people could see us as those who really understand [the situation] and can bring about changes," said Volodymyr Groysman at the beginning of the presentation.
"I wish that we gave a very clear signal to the Ukrainians about where we are going, what we will get, what our further work will result in and have very specific priorities of development of the state from 2017 up to 2020", he stressed.
Volodymyr Groysman noted that this is a real, concrete action plan, which is based on earlier prepared solutions and programme documents: Sustainable Development Strategy "Ukraine - 2020", the Programme of Action of the Government, the Association Agreement with the European Union, the Coalition agreement and international commitments.
