The document contains European approaches to regional development.
The strategy defines how the state will develop and maintain the territories, said Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. In particular, urban agglomerations, monofunctional cities, rural areas in unfavorable conditions, mountainous areas, the macro-region "Azov-Black Sea", border areas and others.
"The issue of the new administrative-territorial system has also been taken into account. The newly created 136 districts and 1,470 CCs are just one step in this direction. We are talking, first of all, about new quality services, renovated hospitals, modern schools, interesting and safe leisure," said the Head of Government.
Denys Shmyhal noted that reduction of social infrastructure facilities is out of question.
"We aim to bring services closer to citizens and increase the comfort of public services. When on regional trips, I see that this issue worries people. I assure Ukrainians once again that all social infrastructure facilities do not depend on the reformatting of districts, and they will continue to operate as before," the Prime Minister stressed.
The Head of Government added that most of these facilities would be transferred to the consolidated territorial communities, and they would manage them independently.
Moreover, Denys Shmyhal stressed the importance of the new State Regional Development Strategy in the context of Ukraine's European and Euro-Atlantic integration.
