Active engagement of the civil society in institutional reforms in Ukraine will allow to accelerate the transformations of post-revolutionary Ukraine and to ensure sustainable economic and social growth, Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine Olexandr Saienko said.
"We are moving in the right direction, but we must accelerate the reforms and we understand the challenges we face, namely, institutional changes, anti-corruption reform, rule of law, modern quality judicial system. But also, in order to be successful in the implementation of the reforms, we must be successful in communicating with the public. We must involve the civil society. We need not only to elaborate, but also implement laws, therefore, we are talking about responsible leadership and involvement in the process of reform of specialists from both the state and private sectors", the emphasized, speaking at the conference "The Future of Ukrainian Democracy after Elections: Successes and Challenges", which took place on May 10 at the Stanford University (USA).
The Minister stressed that over the past 5 years Ukraine has achieved economic stability, started economic growth and launched reforms in all spheres.
Olexandr Saienko noted that the public administration reform is underway in Ukraine: high-end professionals actively join the civil service, including without the civil service experience. Within the framework of the reform new departments, directorates, which are designed to improve the quality of state decisions were created in ministries.
"In this context support for young leaders is very important, and Ukraine is a great place for those who are ready for reforms, who are ready to show their knowledge and take responsibility", the Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers summed up.
