Serhii Marchenko was introduced on March 31, 2020, as the new Minister of Finance of Ukraine.
“Significant strengthening of the fiscal framework of the country is particularly urgent in times of crisis. The effective operation of tax and customs blocks is as important as ever. The key criterion for evaluating this performance will be to replenish the budget since the state must fulfill its obligations to the citizens. Especially to the least protected population,” the Minister said during the introduction.
At the same time, he noted that tax policy should be rational and pragmatic, aimed at protecting and developing the economy of Ukraine. And for that purpose, we need to think about new business incentive tools.
Serhii Marchenko also stressed on the need for the state to fulfill its obligations to international partners. At that, he believes that in the negotiations it is first and foremost critical to protect the interests of Ukraine and its citizens.
As was reported earlier the day before the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine supported the decision on the appointment of Serhii Marchenko to the post of Minister of Finance.
