The delegation of administrative and financial powers to local authorities which was launched in 2014 has offered new opportunities for regional development and should be continued. This statement was issued by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in his communication with journalists in Chernihiv.
He stressed that the success of the reform should not be called into question although at the time it has undergone considerable criticism from the populists.
«People can see positive results today. If a new kindergarten, a school, a road, a sidewalk, a lighting system, a new rural health post, a new public transport are being built in cities, territorial communities as well as in villages, hence this is all a result of the decentralization process. Without the decentralization none of this would have happened», highlighted the Prime Minister.
