The second one is to increase the efficiency of public administration. " Continuation of both  the decentralization reform  and the civil service reform is unchanging priority for us. We restart the whole system of state administration, " Volodymyr Groysman said.

The third bloc is to improve the quality of life of people and to invest in the development of human capital. And here it is important to continue the education and medicine reforms.

The fourth bloc is the security and defense of the state. It includes strengthening of defense capabilities, rule of law and the fight against corruption.
