On February 18, on the sidelines of the Munich Security Conference, Oleksandr Kubrakov, Deputy Prime Minister for Restoration of Ukraine and Minister for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development, held a working meeting with Svenja Schulze, Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development of Germany.
The talks focused on Germany’s participation in the reconstruction of Ukraine, defense support, and cooperation between Ukraine and the German defense sector.
“Today, the key priority of reconstruction is energy and critical infrastructure – everything that will allow Ukrainians to return home and bring stability to their communities. As part of this work, we need international support, in particular from our German partners, their businesses and experts.
For our part, we are working to make the reconstruction as transparent, open and accountable as possible. That is why we pay special attention to working within the framework of the Donor Coordination Platform, whereby each donor will clearly understand the needs of reconstruction in Ukraine and how effectively their funds are used to meet these needs,” said Oleksandr Kubrakov.
The parties agreed that participation of businesses with positive experience in implementing infrastructure projects was essential for the success of the reconstruction, and the governments of both countries would support entrepreneurs in developing international cooperation.
Thus, during a morning meeting with German business, Oleksandr Kubrakov invited German companies to join the reconstruction of infrastructure.
