Ukraine is approaching the decentralization reform equator as evidenced by erected kindergartens, hub schools or built kilometers of new road infrastructure, but above all by the new quality of services provision in communities and improvement of the citizens' lives. Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko announced during the Second All-Ukrainian Forum of the Consolidated Communities.
"Nowadays we can talk about 665 communities in which first elections either have already took place or will be held in December 2017. Taking into account the communities awaiting for the Central Election Commission decision, 688 CCs will have been formed by the beginning of 2018. And this fact brings Ukraine closer to the equator of the reform. After all, the number of amalgamated communities is transformed into a new quality of people’s lives - convenient administrative services in CASPs, in high quality education for children and better competitiveness after training", said Hennadii Zubko.
