Ukraine has ample opportunities to become a global brand, a place for the creation of an innovative product in the most promising areas as well as in new markets, which we all will be proud of. This statement was issued by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during a meeting with young entrepreneurs, the founders of the most successful Ukrainian startups that are recognized in the world and are in demand in Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, etc.
"It is essential for us to change the mode of thinking gradually, in particular, to derogate from the so-called sectoral division. For example, we say that the agriculture or IT sectors are driving forces of the economy. And it's true. But even when we are talking about agrarians, we understand that in most cases we are dealing with raw materials and exports of raw products. However, one must talk about the product. This is a creative industry and a change in approaches, the Prime Minister stressed, Ukraine’s best and brightest are in the world’s various spheres. But we have to talk and work in such a way, in order to ensure that it is interesting to work in Ukraine, and to use our intelligence not as part of another team, but to shape our own team."
Volodymyr Groysman stressed the core objective for the Government, inter alia the issues pertaining to economy and creation of normal conditions for the development of entrepreneurship are not empty words. "I am engaged in a constant dialogue with the business. We communicate, we understand each other and we develop solutions. Our goals and targets are the same. I am ready to discuss various programs and point-based solutions that will allow to make a good step forward," the Prime Minister underlined.
The meeting’s attendees noted that Ukraine can become a leader on many new markets, because it has the notable successes. Such achievements include the use of drones, primarily in the field of agribusiness, the online education market, including education for civil servants. Ukrainian on-line decentralization course, implemented on one of the national educational platforms, was one of the most popular in the world. At present, similar courses on cybersecurity and the use of ProZorro systems are being shaped. Equally important issues are developments in the mining system and use of neurotechnologies.
"It is important for me that Ukraine will become a strong and competitive country. For said purpose I am ready to gather a team of like-minded persons", the Prime Minister claimed and invited entrepreneurs to hold another similar meeting in the course of which to discuss specific ideas and initiatives.
