The development of an enabling business environment, elimination of an unrelenting pressure on business, enhancement of the economy and achievement of the GDP growth at the level of 5-7% in 2-3 years are the key goals for the Government. This was stated by Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman at a session of the Cabinet of Ministers on Wednesday, October 25.
The Prime Minister stressed that a strong economy would resolve another - equally important issue - the well-being of citizens and the strengthening of Ukraine's position on the international arena.
«The economy is showing the resilience. We are planning 3% growth for the next year, the said increase envisages creation of new jobs and increase in wages. We face two challenges: to improve well-being of citizens and to ensure the state is taking a worthy place in Europe and in the world», the Head of Government emphasized. «This can be accomplished on the condition of strengthening the economy, and we can become the most dynamic economy on the continent. The growth should be at the level of 5-7%. We can do this».
In this regard, the Prime Minister recalled that among the steps towards achieving the goal are improvement of the business climate, simplification of permit procedures and introduction of reasonable regulation.
«At the moment, entrepreneurs complain about the pressure of the law enforcement system. In different regions in different ways, but everyone can be blamed for ineffective work and disrespect for business. I want to express gratitude to the Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, the Prosecutor General of Ukraine, the leadership of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine for adopting decisions aimed to prohibit the «mask shows» against entrepreneurs. The epidemic of pressure on business should be stopped. It will be a base point on which we will focus. Business owners and active people create a national product. I am as Prime Minister will defend the rights of honest business in Ukraine», he claimed.
The Prime Minister drew attention to the fact that the Government in synergy with the President and the Parliament will prepare and approve a number of decisions on deregulation including those that will enable Ukraine to enter the top 50 in the Doing Business rankings of the World Bank next year.
«We have moved up to 76th position in World Bank's ease of Doing Business ranking. But this is not enough. We are in synergy with the President of Ukraine and with the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine working out comprehensive solutions in order to ensure the issues of deregulation be a priority», Volodymyr Groysman underlined.
