"We have passed the first paper stage of evaluation on" industrial visa-free regime "and we already have a positive evaluation. The second stage of metrology assessment will begin in September. I hope that by the end of the year we will come to the inking of the ACCA Agreement. The main effect will be one thing - this is the largest investment in trust in Ukrainian producers, "said Taras Kachka.
According to the National Economic Strategy until 2030, one of the priority vectors of development is industry. Supporting this sector to ensure its efficiency and competitiveness will help strengthen its position in markets, integrate Ukrainian producers into global value chains, increase production and exports, and create new jobs.
Among the steps that the Government plans to take for the development of domestic industry - stimulating investment, improving access to finance, implementing Industry 4.0, promoting regional development, developing industrial parks, introducing innovative technologies, developing Ukrainian engineering, chemical, agro and food industries, development defense-industrial complex.
"One of the things the state can do for business is to convince the whole world that our engineers think globally. This means a rejection of Soviet standards, the Agreement on "industrial visa-free regime", technical regulation and more. That is, literally translation into a normal global engineering language of the fact that Ukraine is an industrialized country," Taras Kachka underscored.
