The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, in the framework of strengthening a policy of development of new markets and reinforcement of intergovernmental relations, is planning to improve the format of activities of intergovernmental trade and economic commissions, said the attendees of a special meeting chaired by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman and held at the Cabinet of Ministers’ building with the participation of officials.
The parties agreed that the current work of most committees is of formalistic nature, therefore there occurs the need to elaborate a new model of cooperation, in particular: to identify priority lines for the country to ensure the development of collaboration and to shape a plan of international meetings at least for the coming 3 years. In addition, it was recognized as appropriate to establish in priority countries special departments within the embassies with fixed KPI and the responsibility for organizing exports and leveraging investment.
Commenting on the outcomes of the meeting, the Prime Minister said: "I am ready to support a new model of work of the commissions, their subordinance structure and direction of activities in part of determining priority countries. Let's single out roughly 20 priority countries, define composition and objectives for the commissions, develop with the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and submit it to the Government’s consideration."
First Vice Prime Minister Stepan Kubiv was determined a Coordinator of the mentioned work.
