In 2018, local authorities should wind up the implementation of all projects kicked off in previous periods. The issues at stake are kindergartens, new hub schools, hospitals, clinics, centers for administrative services provision (CASPs), security centers, local infrastructure, etc. The abovementioned projects are being financed by state programs. This statement was issued by Vice Prime Minister, Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko during the meeting with the heads of Regional State Administrations.
"The regions received significant state financial support for 2018. The numbers are as follows: 6 billion hryvnias is allocated to the State Fund for Regional Development, a subvention for rural medicine is 5 billion hryvnias, a subvention for the development of infrastructure of united communities makes up 1.9 billion hryvnias, an educational subvention for the New Ukrainian school is 1 billion hryvnias, the program "School buses" - 900 million hryvnias, construction of football fields - 370 million hryvnias, subvention for social and economic development - 5 billion hryvnias. You possess resources on the ground, thereby everything is in your own hands. At the regional level, you need to clearly identify how the funds will be allocated and to which projects. The timely putting of objects into operation is your personal responsibility," underscored the Vice Prime Minister, appealing to the heads of RSAs.
Hennadii Zubko informed that 4.900 regional projects were implemented at the expense of the state funding over the period from 2015 to 2017. "The development of a network of primary health care in the countryside, a new educational system, as well as libraries and inclusive resource centers, CASPs, citizens' security centers, kindergartens, and infrastructure projects are among ambitious projects. And we have to accelerate its implementation. Once again I want to place a special emphasis on the fact that introduction of much-needed projects in the regions, first and foremost, is a change of the quality of life of Ukrainians", stressed the Vice Prime Minister.
