Ukraine banks on further support of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) in pursuing reforms in the economy and social domain. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman stressed during a meeting with Acting Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development Wade Warren.
The interlocutors also tackled mutual cooperation in judicial reform and anti-corruption policy, and agreed that current Ukraine stands a good chance to implement necessary transformations in favour of the State and the citizens.
"We have embarked on a number of ambitious reforms at the national level, and your support is paramount", stressed the Prime Minister.
He accentuated that it’s rather challenging to bring about necessary change amid the hostilities in Donbas and a hybrid war in the economy and the information sector. "Though, we approved the Government’s Action Program through 2020”, said the Prime Minister. “Our prime concern is a pension reform we have agreed with the IMF and the World Bank. The next on the agenda is privatization. In a few weeks we are going to present an upgraded system [of sale of state-owned assets – ed.]. A sensitive but not least urgent direction is a land reform. Here we have also found the format in what to engage on discussion. In parallel, we are working on a medical reform and that of education. These are five topmost reforms at the moment."
