The draft State Budget for 2018 is developed with due account for the decentralization process launched in 2014, and the Government stands for local government’s development. This was claimed by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during A Question Time for the Government at the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
"Decentralization is included in the budget, and nobody is going to halt this process. The result achieved within the framework of the decentralization process is our common success. Nobody will be given the right to destroy decentralization. We supported and will support local self-government and the decentralization. I am as Prime Minister committed to the process of decentralization and strengthening of local self-government in Ukraine", underscored Volodymyr Groysman.
