The level of economic growth of Ukraine depends on the success in curbing corruption, hence it is critical to restart the work of the National Agency on Prevention of Corruption (NAPC) and to hold independent high-quality selection process before December 18 to choose the chairman to the national anti-corruption agency. Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk said in his opening statement at a meeting of the Competition Commission for the selection of head of the National Agency on Prevention of Corruption.
“The Government is doing its best to reload the NAPC work. We will adopt decisions as quickly as possible, choose the most honest, professionals with a good reputation. Under the same principle, we have selected the Commission that comprises just such people who are capable of making independent decisions,” said Oleksiy Honcharuk.
The PM expressed hope that the newly-formed independent Commission would select a person to restart the work of the national anti-corruption body. "This is a critical objective for the Government and for the country as well," Oleksiy Honcharuk emphasized.
