The Head of Government believes that further decentralization, restoring of the country's logistics potential, implementing reforms in education, healthcare sectors and retrofitting the pension system, which are currently in Parliament waiting for approval, changes in privatization mechanisms, supported by the National Reform Council within the President of Ukraine - all of those are critical for economy’s development.
"Today we will also consider the program of development of farming", the Head of Government said. He recalled that the Government allocates UAH 1 billion for the implementation of this program. "We will increase the number of farms in geometric progression. We must give a new impetus to the farms, thereby allowing the country to supply the domestic market with high-quality products and create new jobs", Volodymyr Groysman stressed.
