    Approaches to governance in Ukraine should be changed towards development of the potential and gradually abandoning external support. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in his statement for the participants of the general assembly of the Association of Ukrainian Cities.

    He stressed that the practice of "holding out a begging bowl" in search of sources of funding should become history.

    “We must change attitude! We must open up the potential for the development of the national economy,” stressed Volodymyr Groysman, “Each particular region should put emphasis on the development of economy.”

    The Prime Minister accentuated that in this regard decentralization provided a number of instruments. At that, the transfer of resources is considered insufficient. “It is crucial to direct funding to improve the quality of people’s lives and the growth of the national economy”, urged Volodymyr Groysman.

    He stressed that necessary changes are being introduced at the central level, in particular a number of initiatives have been launched – from fundamental transformations in the social sphere to improving business conditions and legislative support for entrepreneurship.
