First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy of Ukraine Yuliia Svyrydenko discussed the priority issues of stimulating the growth of the Ukrainian economy during an online meeting with the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine’s Economic Recovery Penny Pritzker. The meeting was also attended by Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to the United States Oksana Markarova and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Bridget Brink.
“During the conversation, we discussed the priority steps that Ukraine should take on its way to building a self-sufficient economy. We talked about creating more favourable conditions for attracting investment and increasing the capacity to insure war risks. We also discussed a plan to implement reforms in various sectors of government and the economy, from improving the efficiency of customs and tax collection to increasing opportunities for Ukrainian exports. During the meeting, we received detailed feedback from our American partners on each item. They are ready to support the reform plan developed by the Ukrainian Government and provide very concrete suggestions on how to implement certain specific steps. We are grateful for the joint efforts to support the stability of the Ukrainian economy,” said Yuliia Svyrydenko.
The parties agreed to continue consultations in the near future with the involvement of a wide range of private businesses, investment companies and American banks.
