International conferences on reforms in Ukraine, which have already been held in London and Copenhagen, should shift from the format of discussion of transformations to the format of their real evaluation and attraction of corresponding support - both at the technical and financial levels. This was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during a meeting with the diplomatic corps.
The Prime Minister recalled that in June, during a conference in Copenhagen, he proposed to set up a group of experts from different countries that could assess the real state of affairs in Ukraine, shape a strategic plan for state development, and offer the size of assistance they consider to be appropriate. The said proposal had received positive feedback.
"And in fact, during such conferences, there should be specificity - both in terms of technical assistance and in terms of proportionality of support. I emphasize: we do not need gifts! We know that debt needs to be paid off. And we ask the partners for such a support due to which we could, among other things, reduce the debt burden", the Prime Minister underlined.
He added that the next conference to tackle reform in Ukraine will be held in Canada. This event should be more meaningful based on the experience of London and Copenhagen.
