The Government will work to ensure the amount of investment is increased in Ukraine.
The Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal made this statement at the forum "Transformation Trends: Innovation and Digitalization", which took place on Tuesday, July 21, with the participation of the President of the Swiss Confederation Ms. Simonetta Sommaruga.
Denys Shmyhal stressed that Switzerland enters the five largest investors in the Ukrainian economy. And the Government has an understanding and vision of the steps that are needed to attract investment and facilitate doing business.
"We have to create a favorable environment for investors. And the result of that will be seen in the Doing Business ranking, with our current position being the 64-th. Our goal, which I consider absolutely attainable in the coming years, is to enter TOP-30. We know what we should do to achieve this goal and to make it easier for business to work," urged the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister expressed confidence that Ukraine is competitive. And pursuing reforms will help better unlock Ukraine's investment potential.
During his speech, Denys Shmyhal also welcomed the transfer to the concession of the Kherson Sea Commercial Port to Risoil-Kherson company with the participation of Swiss capital.
"This is more than UAH 300 million, which the investor is planning to invest in this project and in local infrastructure. We are confident that during the first years of concessions, freight turnover and the quality of services will increase significantly," the Head of Government stressed.
The Prime Minister also noted the support of the Swiss Confederation on the path to digital transformation of Ukraine.
Due to the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, we were able to implement the DIIA (Action) project. Today it has more than 4 million users and is an advanced project for the world," said Denys Shmyhal.
The Prime Minister added that on a daily basis the Government is working to expand the capabilities of the electronic portal "DIIA", which already offers more than 30 electronic services. Among those is the fastest business registration service in the world.
