The introduction of legislation designed to support technoparks and development of domestic production is to become the essential priority of the National Committee for revival of the industry in the near-term prospect. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during the first meeting of the Committee.
"It is time to elaborate legislation on supporting domestic production as well as a package of legislation for the development of innovation parks. I think this is the objective for the next 2.5 months, noted the Prime Minister. We also need to change the system of financing of the Ukrainian science, based on the needs of the market. Today, a large part of our scientists as well as IT-specialists are working on outsourcing and generally speaking its technological annexes. This should be changed, they should be supported. In what way?. Perhaps only through the allocation of resources from the state budget we are not getting the result. Our task is to provide a legislative framework for it and most importantly- not to be afraid to take bold decisions.”
It is crucial to facilitate the renewal of fixed assets and value determination of Ukrainian raw materials abroad and domestically. "I don't get a point why our manufacturer buys Ukrainian raw materials which are sometimes even more expensive than for its foreign competitor", stressed Volodymyr Groysman.
He drew a special attention to the issue of privatization. “A large-scale privatization contains investment, technologies and workplaces”, summed up the Prime Minister.
