The envoy of the German Government for decentralization issues will work in Ukraine. This was stated by Vice Prime Minister/ Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko.
According to the Vice Prime Minister, authorized representative of the Federal Government of Germany will perform functions in Ukraine already starting from September.
«The decentralization reform is one of the most far-reaching reforms and has already yielded positive financial and material results. The reform has been highly praised by the European Union countries, inter alia Germany with the support of which many projects are being implemented in Ukraine. Delegation of the envoy for decentralization issues is another indicator of the successful delivery of the reform. Decentralization has the largest support of the EU among other reforms. Germany is our reliable partner in pursuing both the decentralization and energy efficiency reforms. I am assured that the appointment of the authorized person will deepen our partnership in terms of cooperation between regions of Ukraine and Germany, as well as the implementation of infrastructure projects using best practices of Germany», Hennadii Zubko underscored.
