The far-reaching reforms introduced by the Government in key spheres will allow to ensure a new quality of life - from education and healthcare to effective combatting of corruption. This was announced by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during International Ukraine Reform High-Level Meeting.
The Head of Government stressed the conference is taking place on the anniversary of the deaths of participants in the Revolution of Dignity. Thereby it is vitally important to remember what exactly has been done over the past 4 years.
"Our starting positions were very weak, and now we need to implement the most drastic reforms in all sectors of life. We are building a new Ukraine", the Prime Minister underscored.
According to the Head of Government, in the medium term, the results of the Government's reforms in education, health care and pension systems and public administration reform will be received. Changes are to be kicked off in the management of state property, in the process of attraction of investments, in the strengthening of deregulation and decentralization. Particular attention is paid to the establishment of an anti-corruption court. "We have shaped basis for the creation of anti-corruption court. But the key element, which is a fair trial, is missing. In the coming months our task is to approve a decision on the creation of an independent and open anti-corruption court. This tool will give an opportunity to bring to a close the issue of corruption in Ukraine," he stressed.
Apart from that, the Prime Minister emphasized Ukraine faces great threats and strong populism. "But we have to work. The country sees economic growth for 8 quarters in a row. We expect economic growth to the tune of 3% in 2018. However, with the right decisions I think that in the medium-term, we will achieve 5 % economic upturn," he added.
The Prime Minister stressed the Government will continue its cooperation with the International Monetary Fund, focus on macro stability, implement plans for leverage investments in infrastructure and increase exports. " What we have already changed will give us an opportunity to get a new quality of life," he underscored .
